iPhone 4 is too modern for many Apple fans, they want the 3GS for 30,000+. Remember in 2009, iPhone uers said the rest of us were less intelligent because we bought phones with more than 480x320 resolution, they said noone would ever need more, that it was perfect and the best displa money could buy. iPhone 4 has 4 times more pixels than that, and is therefor by their own definition only for the less intelligent, smart people buy 480x320 phones with a ppi of max 165, they did say noone would ever need higher, right? Stick by your statements Appleboys.
I think,apple thinks that Indians are fools but they are wrong if they want to sell an outdated phone they should look at iphone 4s instead of iphone 4. They can put the specifications of iphone 4s in a polycarbonate plastic body instead of premium glass & aluminum body to reduce the cost & price. Motorola will be launching the Moto-G in India some time this week. The Moto G to be launched in India will be the dual-SIM model. No word on pricing yet but the phone should be priced around INR 15,000-16,000 for the 8GB variant which is mutch better deal than iphone 4 which is Rs 22,900, the equivalent of around $370. That's for an 8GB version. Moto-G is much better than iphone 4 by any means.
Wow!!!! iPhone 4 at this price. Definitely I'll buy 5 pieces for my family. It's the best ever smartphone with latest iOS 7. Hats off to Apple for this very awesome phone. Apple is the best no matter what you guys say. It's the best deal for an Apple. I'm amazed like wow. This phone is better than any plastic crap like Samsung Galaxy phones and cheap phones like Micromax, Karbonn, LAVA, XOLO, Intex etc. Way better than any Nokia crap. Apple is the king. Heck, I would even return my Nokia Lumia 1020 for this amazing phone. So small and so easy to operate. Really a nice move by Apple. Apple didn't relaunch it anywhere except India. See? Apple cares about my country. I just love Apple so much. Wish Steve Jobs was here to celebrate.
APPLE TAKE MY FREE ADVISE - For India you keep 5c price as Rs 25000. You will change your fortunes.
How desperate can apple get to sell something that old and still have the balls to ask that amount of money. I guess only the iphonies will fall for it........
Business will always be business for companies. As long as they know they can get profit from it even if it is 2 years old. The only problem now is that they try to produce new phones in a short time from the previous not like before when nokia 3310 & 321o were the highlights when it comes to mobile. they stayed for how amny years.Now its a matter of Qauntity not quality esp samsung whioh release a new phone every month.

And it's not about who deliver it first, it's who deliver it better.
iPhone Dualcore is a beast, how much power will it deliver if it produce a quadcore processor in the near future? Think about it without a bias opinion.
Guys, Maybe its about business...YES...but APPLE drives more than half of the world in every single media aspect, be it Music or Graphics or the making of Movies...im talking on the professional front. Try running a music software on Samsung or any other brand and making a good song out it? you are destined to flop. Moreover, the developed world doesn't bother about Android, it runs on the 'i' product. Business strategy of 'APPLE' VERY MUCH...tell me who doesn't look out for a profit. They should be mad if they run a business without looking at the max profit in every possible way.
And the iPhone4 is an amazing device. Moreover, it would outlast ANY other phone in terms of everyday use. No hangups whatsoever. Be realistic and not biased. Apple remains the Innovator and not the imitator!

It is priced at 23k, not 17k. You know what, forget iphone 4.Even iphone 5s looks outdated when put against the likes of G2 and One. Only an iphone lover can defend this ' so laughable that it is no more funny ' move by Apple. You buy one and do not make fun of those who apply brain before spending their hard earned cash.
Apple is trying to make a profit for a 3year old device before destroying it. if indians buy it, good for apple.. if not then they will destroy it. it's that simple.. it's business..
Don't curse Apple for doing it, iphone 4 will just sit in the corner along with iphone 4s,5,5c and 5s in their apple stores. It's up to the Indian customers if they will buy it or not.

Stop dreaming, the price isnt 15k. Ofcourse noone would make a deal out of this news if the price were 15 or even a little above that.
I am wondering who will go ahead and buy this...at this price, anyone who is seen carrying this phone will be a subject of jokes. Pity on those who bought it when it was a new launch.
Its entirely a cash-motivated move by the company.. This phone is comparable to Android devices which cost less than Rs. 10000 ($200). It cant even beat Lumia 520 in performance which is priced at Rs.8000 ($130) in India...
LOL.. Desperate Apple..
Being an Apple fanboy, I have already left to visit gsmarena bcoz it's quite clear that this is an anti apple site. The most funny part of this article is that they say there is no demand for iPhones in India. Well, let me tell them that I had to wait 20 days to get my 5s. And talking of this iPhone 4, it's a great choice for 15000 Rs. compared to those brick sized, buggy droids. Who wants those junk from sammy and co.
IndiaTimes is not a legitimate source and unless Apple comes out with a press release this will remain only a rumour.
iPhone 4 for 23k...lol...one could buy a nexus 4
and btw, a lame move by apple
In Latin this is called MALUM IN SE. It measn simply "wrong in itself". Definition by wikipedia is "Something considered a universal wrong or evil, regardless of the system of laws in effect.". Its also a famous movie quote by Matt Damon in the remake of classic western True Grit. At 15 to 17k i would not have said anything, that would also be overpriced but would remove the offensive effect and the general feeling of a crime being committed.
