Many of our readers have been pinging us with the iPhone 5 pricing and we have been hearing the same prices from our sources too.

As expected, the iPhone 5 will start from Rs 45,500 for the 16GB version, Rs 52,500 for 32GB and Rs 59,500 for 64GB. Apple's other distribution partner today announced that the iPhone 5 will be available across India from November 2.

We are also hearing that Airtel and Aircel might just announce reverse subsidy plans for the iPhone 5 just like they did for the iPhone 4S last year. We will have the details with us in the next few days. Hat tip to Rishi, iSheep!
