iPhone sort of crash lands in India - but it still the best phone

Posted by SS on 11:19 PM in , , ,

Launch of Apple's iconic iPhone in India on August 22 had fuelled speculation of similar frenzy that had followed its launch in the US, in July. 

But the high Indian price tag seemed to douse the appetite of the Indian middle class which Apple thought would have given an arm and a leg to own the ultimate piece-de-resistance. The high price definitely disappointed iPhone lovers and aspirants alike, and Apple was lambasted for having got its strategy all wrong in this price-sensitive part of the geography. 

Now, it appears the doomsdayers may have been right after all. According to a media report, Apple has been able to sell no more than 12,000 iPhones in the country as against an inventory of 50,000 that its two resellers in India -- Bharti Airtel and Vodaphone Essar -- had piled up here. Apple has been mum on how many units have been sold in India ever since its launch. 

New year is coming very soon... Can we expect a new price... a low price tag.. we don't mind 1 or 2 months contract with the service provider.
