Vodafone Will Also Sell iPhone 3GS in India
By on March 27th, 2010

Vodafone-iPhone After Airtel, Vodafone has also announced that it will be offering the iPhone 3GS in India. However, don’t get too excited as Vodafone’s pricing is as ridiculous as Airtel’s.

The 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models of iPhone 3GS will retail for Rs.33,500, Rs.40,500 and Rs.47,500 respectively in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. In the rest of India, they will be available for Rs.29,500, Rs.35,500 and Rs.41,500 respectively.

Vodafone will be offering iPhone 3GS users three plans. Users opting for Plan 1 would be charged Rs. 799 per month and receive 249 minutes of voice credits and 250MB data credit. Plan 2 costs Rs. 999 per month and includes 299 minutes of voice credits with 600MB of data credit. Users can also opt for a basic plan, which costs Rs 100 per month and does not include any voice or data credits.

The iPhone is a fantastic phone; however, does it merit the outrageous sum that Airtel and Vodafone are demanding? We believe it does not. Unfortunately, the truth is that there is a certain section of Apple fans that will always go ahead and get their latest product, irrespective of the price tag. And, this is the section that Airtel and Vodafone are trying to take exploit with their absurd launch prices.
