If a reverse subsidy model for iPhone 4 or an iPhone 3GS at Rs 19,990 were not compelling enough to pick up an iPhone, Aircel is now offering customers the option to pay for these iOS devices in six interest-free EMIs. The offer is valid for ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank credit card holders and is currently available at all Aircel stores. How could both Nimish and me say no when an iPhone 4 16GB was available under Rs 6K a month? Yeah, we have picked ours, what about you?Google+

This is coming across as a surprise to us as well, but have learnt that Aircel is on track to run out of iPhone 4 stocks soon. The carrier is finding the sales “much beyond expectations” and has placed/is placing an order for more stocks. Aircel had received 20,000 units of the iPhone 4 or so we have been told by a source, with a proven track-record for information related to the iPhone 4 launch in India. The fact that the iPhone 4 is on the verge of selling-out in two weeks since its launch shoul...

File this one under rumor for the moment, but we are hearing that Aircel and Airtel are geared up to launch the iPhone 4 in India and May 27 is the date that is being tossed around by multiple sources. We are trying to get a confirmation on the date, though we know for sure we are very close to D-Day. Stay tuned for more on this. Google+
Just like we reported that the iPhone 4 will be launched in India towards the end of May, both Aircel and Airtel have put up their registration pages for the elusive smartphone. Both the carriers will sell factory unlocked iPhone 4 and are expected to follow a reverse subsidy model like we had suggested earlier. Finally, the iPhone 4 will be available across retail stores and won’t be limited to Airtel and Aircel outlets. So hang in tight there, while we countdown to the launch.Google+
Let the flood gates open! We have been able to confirm that both Aircel and Airtel are indeed working on a reverse subsidy model and now, we can also confirm that the iPhone 4 will be sold across retailers like any other smartphone! This is a departure from Apple’s (and the carrier’s practice) of selling the iPhone only from carrier stores. A few retailers have started receiving packages like the one above, warming them to sell the iPhone 4 from their counters. Considering the iPhone 4 will be unl...
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 u...
Earlier this month, Aircel and Airtel announced their plans to launch the iPhone 4 in India in the coming months. Both carriers had their lips zipped when asked what ‘coming months’ meant. But now we have a fair idea of the timeline. One of our connects has tipped us that we should expect the iPhone 4 to launch in the May-end-early-June time frame. We were also hearing word from the street that carriers would subsidize the phone, something our connect immediately rubbished. We believe the launch w...
Aircel and Airtel today announced the imminent launch of the iPhone 4 on their networks in India.

Airtel already has over 2 million 3g subscribers and both the carriers have spectrum to roll out 3G services in 13 circles. (more…)Google+
