Apple has finally decided to launch iPhone 3GS in India in collaboration with Bharti Airtel, India’s largest cellular service provider. This version of the iPhone is said to be very powerful and has a lot of speed, as well as has a few other features like long battery shelf, 3 MP auto focus camera., video recording and hands free facilities. Apart from that the most recommendable feature is the highly improved performance which is even two times faster than the currently available iPhone 3G.

The Apple iPhone 3GS will be made available for customers only through a service contract along with the service provider. Since Bharati Airtel has entered into a tie-up with Apple, the iPhone 3GS will be locked to Airtel and will work with an activated Airtel SIM card (as reaveled at the Airtel website). The iPhone will be available in Black & White colors. It will be available in 16 GB and 32 GB capacity.

Though Apple has not given any kind of price structure for the iPhone 3GS for the Indian market, the 16GB version of iPhone 3GS is priced approximately at Rs. 33,000 and the 32GB version will be around Rs. 42,000 in India.

Other cellular service providers like Reliance Communications, Vodafone Essar and Aircel are keen to tie-up with Apple to sell iPhone 3GS to their customers in India. Only state owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam and MTNL offer the 3G services as they get the services on preferential basis. The result of the auction and winner’s announcement will take around 2 months.

Some 190,000 orders have been placed till now. But the company is not in a position to ship all its accessories that come with the iPad.

Now You Can “Gift An App” To Your Friend

iTunes gifting has always been a nice, lazy way to wish a friend a happy birthday or holiday, but until now that feature has been exclusive to iTunes audio and video media. Now, Apple has added the ability to send iPhone apps as gifts.

After agreeing to the new iTunes Store terms and conditions, you’ll be able to select a “Gift This App” option from the pull-down menu next to an app’s price. From thereon, you can punch in the name and e-mail address of your desired recipient, along with a personal message, and iTunes will send him or her a redemption code to download the app.

It works the same way as gifting music or movies, which has been a popular feature in the iTunes Store. This is especially good news for iPhone developers, as the gifting feature can induce brand new iPhone owners to download their first paid app ever. Gifting might just work as a gateway drug that gets iPhone owners hooked on the addictive experience of paying for new apps and digital media in general, which would further stimulate the app economy.

A hat tip to Rana Sobhany, who first noted the change in her blog.
