As expected, Airtel has started taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5 for Rs 45,500. Currently, Airtel is only taking pre-orders for the black model with 16GB of storage and it is yet to list any other iPhone 5 variant.
Airtel says that the device will be available from 11 November onwards. However it also says that the device will ship in 16 to 17 days, so if one intends to purchase the device from Airtel, then be prepared to wait for sometime.
For those who don’t know, the iPhone 5 is powered by Apple’s latest A6 chip, and it has a larger 4-inch Retina display and packs in an improved 8-megapixel camera from the iPhone 4S. It also features a new design that involves the use of aluminium on the back where the screen meets the body with diamond cut chamfered edges.
