For anyone that is interested: i) This mobile phone costs around the same as a motorcyle/two wheeler, which itself is yet to penetrate all segments of the society ii) Also, theft is a major problem in all cities and towns and the law cannot help with this at this time, and finally iii) These phones mostly help with ego more than anything else because more than half the smartphone users are not on data plans. I will wait for some one to ask me what my point is, exactly.

IPhones are selling like Hot cakes , samsung,HTC releases every Flagship here earlier than most countries and almost everyone in cities has a Note,Galaxy S series in their hand, Lumia has been very successful in india and BB have sold the most phones in india then any other country by volume.
India is a great market for low end phones no doubt but its equally good for the higher end ones too !

India is better with middle range mobiles like Micromax. There is no need to introduce such expensive phones in the market which only a few people will buy.

India is a market for lower end mobiles. By increasing the price this much, companies try to gain every bit of profit they can from the sale of few high end mobile phones.

Its price is.significantly higher. Xperia z is priced at 38000. Also htc has tied up with reliance providing 1gb 3g for 3 months, which has bad reputation. Z provides 8gb 3g for three months with vodafone.....
htc need some effective marketing to Survive
