Apple has not done well with their iPhone family of devices outside the United States, specially in India, where cheap devices from Nokia rule the roost. This is one of the reasons why Apple has not released iPhone 3GS in India yet.
However, according to some rumors from Fone Arena, the iPhone 3GS is most likely to make a debut in India on Monday, March 15th, 2010. The device may be available for pre-orders through Apple on 4 networks, including Vodafone, Airtel, Aircel and Reliance.
However, this is definitely a game ploy on part of Apple to offload devices to other areas where they have not been doing well, considering that the iPhone 4G will hit markets soon in the United States. iPhone 3GS has been in circulation for quite sometime now, and a late entry into India suggests my above thoughts.
To top it iPhone has had less than a lukewarm response in India, considering the high cost and lack of 3G, without which the iPhone is just another device.
Please note, this is not confirmed news and is rumored, so don’t set high expectations about this just yet, we will keep you posted when confirmed news becomes available to us.
