Aircel, Airtel to launch factory unlocked iPhone 4
This one should please all those who keep bashing Apple for its ‘step-motherly’ treatment towards Indian consumers. We can now confirm that both Airtel and Aircel will launch factory unlocked iPhone 4 in India. We do not have the exact date of launch, yet, but we have been informed that it could happen towards the end of May. Finally, we hear that a version of the iPhone 3GS (probably 16 GB) will also be available sub-Rs 30,000, followed by the two iPhone 4 variants (16 GB and 32 GB) both priced upwards of Rs 30,000. This should make things a bit uncomfortable for the likes of HTC and Samsung, which are relying heavily on their Android smartphones.
