Airtel is Launching Apple iPhone 3GS in India

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.
