iPhone price in India – Big disappointment!

i

There’s no doubt that iPhone will remain a premium commodity and not a crowd puller in India. You’ve seen why.

Now, there’s even more to worry.

An iPhone in India will cost you INR – 36,000 for a 16GB model.
In the US, a 16GB Apple iPhone 3G is available at $299 (around INR 12,259). So an Apple iPhone 3G in India will cost you three times as that of it’s original price. WOW!

For non-believers, Check out this news from Reuters.

iPhone India Price

I suspect this is a much thought after “premium pricing” strategy from Apple (or whoever is behind it in India), because they already know that it’s not going to be popular even if the price is kept lower.

So who’s going to take it for 36,000 Rs with no 3G, and all the other list of drawbacks?

  • Yikes. That’s quite a price hike. Are there other smartphones that may be better deals (although they won’t have the glamour of being an iPhone?

  • Airtel and Vodafone are launching it here without any contract-based plans. That means, you dont have to stick with the same plan for 2~3 years. Thats how the biggies sell it for a reduced price in US. They can makeup the loss of discount with a 2 or 3 year contract.

  • Singtel in singapore released Iphone for 0$ 🙂 almost the same time. But its coupled with a 2 year subscription, with $145/month. Though it comes with a 25hr outgoing per month, who in india will be ready to pay 5000 a month? 🙂 So its same… Getting iphone for 36000 INR in India by loan or for 0$ from singtel and later 5000 INR /month for 2 years.. 🙂
