so finally the iphone is in india. the price is rs.31000 for 8gb and rs37000for 16gb.however in the usa its price is usd499 or rs22500.infact being shipped from china it should at best be priced at rs22500.also competetion is fast catching up . many a manf are perfecting the touch interface and by the year end we shall have competetion catching up.apple should be proactive in their marketing strategy and customers in india are price conscious.
all the best.

and we will buy it again but even without it
we LOVE THE IPHONE
noone can spoil our fun nether do you
Apple could have made this phone so good by making adding basic functions like better camera, bluetooth, picture messaging ect
I don't get it the phone is called iphone 3g yet the phone doesn't even have a front facing camera???
They have left these off on purpose, they will bring out another phone soon and will miss out features on that one too... its a marketing scam i do beleive

Iphine Software update 2.1
camera 20 MP with supernova flesh
video 100 fps unlimited
bluetooth conect to the white house
mega mms with passibility to send bottle of wine
battery life 10 years on mars
also passible to connect to your brain to synchronize update yourself ............
who will want Omnia of Nokia anymore
Can everyone stop saying how good the iphone is and comment on how we can improve it...
It is a good phone but at the end of the day its limited in use as its missing vital technology that other phones have..
You can't even send a picture message!
I so badly want to buy the iphone because of how fun it is, but i feel apple have missed these features out a second time is just a kick in the bollocks
They are waiting and stringing us all out until they release another phone with updated camera ect... but no doubt will always leave something out - just to keep us wanting and waiting for the next newer model
Does anyone know when they will release a new iphone??
maybe, 20 Aug 2008 iphone has some things which i dont like(mostly many people) 1.no transfer of files over blu... more1) they dont charge for the software update 2) why do u need a memory card slot when u get up to 16gb BUILT IN MEMORY?!!?!?
why did apple leave out some of the useful features such as the transfer over bluetooth and MMS and things like that, they're like the most basic features on the some of the low end phones. the UI is fantastic, one of the best ive seen on any phone but it lacks in so many other ways! really stuck on as whether i should buy this or the omnia, apple, get your act together!
BEWARE OF BUYING iPhone 3G!!!
Friends.....those of you in India planning for iPhone...
THINK TWICE BEFORE MAKING A DECISION... The short comings of iPhone are endless...
1. No video calling
2. No AD2P on the Bluetooth,
3. CAN’T share ANY (mp3, images, videos....) files via Bluetooth,
4. Can't use as a wireless modem, (you pay ridiculous data charges to activate internet on your
phone, but cannot connect it to your
PC and browse when you are at home)
5. No copy and paste,(cannot copy a part of a.... say.... email & send it....have to type it out yourself)
6. No 3.2 or 5 mega pixel camera ,(the 2MP camera it carries is
worst camera i've ever seen..... photos look like they have come out of a VGA camera)
7. No video recording with camera
8. No front camera
9. No flash
10. No JAVA support
11. No physical keyboard (BELIEVE me! this alone is a deal breaker...touch keyboard as
good as it looks...once you use it then only you come to know about the
importance of having a hard keypad)
12. No 3G network yet in India So why pay for expensive 3G
phone if you can't use its 3G services so,for India , iPhone 2.0 is no better than its first version
13. No removable battery. (You cannot change
battery. Have to send it to apple outlet.. Come on now!!!!...This is not an
iPod . Its a bloody phone. You cannot live without phone for 2-3 days)
14. No hap tic feedback and
15. Cannot send MMS
16. Can't use as external storage device (16 GB of utter waste..next time you go to your
friend's house & find some interesting songs, movies , etc...Sorry you cannot connect
your '16 GB' phone and share it!!!! Apple apparently has a solution.. " BUY
MUSIC & MOVIES FROM iTUNES STORE "..... Give me a break will you APPLE!!!)
17. No FM radio
18. Can't use your mp3 files as ringtones,(This is heights man!!!)
19. Cannot insert any other SIM card….
20. Completely tied to iTunes... Connect to
your friend's iTunes & you risk erasing everything on your phone ….
iphone is the king! hail to you king of all phones, everyone bow down and show respect.
Check this out:
This site become an competitie site for Iphone 3g and Nokia 95 also something called like Omnia of so.
People there is no better phone than iphone however it misses some features i am sure it will be fixt with firmware upgrade 2.1.
Iphine is the king the rest are servents
the iphone is way more hyped then any phone on the market and not only that it has half the things othere phones have like 2mp camara blue touth thats usales that can use to download or upload mp3s or videos camaras cant do video maby its a good screen but its way to hyped for what it doze and not only that they make you get a data plan for $30 dollers plus the talk plan thats more then $80 or $90 a month for 3 years i can buy 10 nokia n95 for that would you wanna pay over $1000 dollers for a phone that to hyped and doze half of othere phones
Guys remember what happenend to reliance and airtel blackberry price in India and also with RIM. when RIM was launched it was Rs. 27000 but within 6 months it was being sold just for Rs. 501. The same is going to happen with iphone. I have used the unlocked iphone available in the grey market and it is waste of money and thats too in 31000 or 36000. better to go for samsung innov8 or else some other fone.
India is victim of another overpricing. Apple doesn’t want to win the customers. They just want to screw up everything by overcharging. When everywhere else they launched around Rs.16,000/-, we Indians have to pay double the price. Their understanding of Indian market and the positioning is wrong. They think we are nuts. I will never think of buying this phone, even though they reduce the price. Also many people using iphone I asked about the performance, they say it is nothing greater than a normal HTC phone.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Wow, another insecure N95 fanboy. How can N95 do anything better when the iphone beats its UI? The iphone has the better and faster web browser. Iphone has a qwerty keyboard. Better screen. Better mp3 player. More fun to use. Nah, N95 might be better in some features that the iphone doesn't have, but on mutual features, the iphone wins most of them, so think again.
V-man, 22 Aug 2008What's the use of having bluetooth if you cant transfer files!?? get with it apple! i'd rathe... moreTo answer your question. BT is MAINLY used for handsfree communication, not transferring of files. Though it would be nice to be able to transfer files via BT, but it does not mean that it's useless if it can't. There are times that I do not want to share the files that I have on my phone, at least they cannot make me transfer those files because the iphone can't.
