iPhone 4S India launch likely on November 24, will be expensive
News is trickling out from a couple of our trusted sources that the iPhone 4S launch in India is likely to happen on November 24. In all probability, Airtel and Aircel will reveal their iPhone 4S pricing and plan details on that day with the smartphone itself being available from midnight of November 25. (Apple always releases the iPhone on a Friday globally.) This comes after we exclusively reported earlier that the iPhone 4S will be launched in November in India. However, things do not look too encouraging when it comes to the pricing of both the iPhone 4 8GB and the iPhone 4S. Blame it on a weaker Rupee against the US Dollar. We are told the iPhone 4 8GB variant might not be able to sport a sub-Rs 30,000 price tag and the top-end iPhone 4S 64GB model could end up costing close to Rs 50,000! However, both the carriers are currently working on their plans and we hope they come up with some real subsidy rather than the reverse subsidy plans they introduced with the iPhone 4. We are sniffing for more details and will keep you posted. Stay tuned!
