15K with exchange or 20K without exchange! WTF? I will pay 5K with exchange or 10K without exchange for iphone 4. Sorry, that's maximum. Come'n its 3 year old phone.
IMHO, Apple should offer 5C for 15K. It's failed product, anyway. Maybe they may get some buyers. Of course, not me!
More likely they have some leftover iPhone 4's that they're desperate to unload. Ship them to India and hope some gullible, ill-informed consumers might gobble them up, believing they're getting an iPhone on the cheap, when in reality they're being screwed in the deal thanks to the paltry 8 gigs of memory and lack of expansion slot and updates.
I'm assuming they will re-release the phone back when they launch iOS 7.1 that will bring faster animations, so that the iPhone 4 will appear faster. Pretty safe call.
Infact, I am only wondering if I can buy this phone, keep this for some 25-30 years unopened and then one day sell it as antique or some museum house for some good money...!!!! Hehe...Stupid dreams!! But that's the only use I can imagine...!!
If that's all Apple can do to boost the sales in India, i'll guess Apple have totally lost against the competition.

Rs 15k that too with exchange that mean outright it will cost Rs 20k
at ha... moreBro, Altough I agree Nokia 525 is a really good phone for the price, but I cannot agree with your comparison on RAM.
Please note: before anyone jumps on me, let me make it clear am Not advocating iPhone4, but there is something you have to know before comparing phones.
- 1gb ram vs 256 mb
-- Well, it's the API and ecosystem that matters for RAM. A 512MB Apple Device can still perform better than 1GB or 2GB device coz apple designs their own hardware and Software. It's actually better optimized.
But we have to think differently here, it's Apple and they must have some strategy else they won't even care to enter low price market. It's actually they want to target the local Business Houses so that these corporate stores can offer iPhones to their employees and more people join their ecosystem.
You see, you or me, would never bring an iPhone4 home in 2014, with our hard earned money, but in company store, if offered by company, you may or may not have a choice, but at end of day, you will accept whatever company has to offer.
OMG Apple, this is the most offensive move you have made to a country so far... >:(
salman khan , 14 Jan 2014if u dnt have a iphone u dnt have a iphone . till now iphone 3gs is in demand in india A friend of mine got iphone 3GS as BDay gift and she sold it for Rs.4000 coz nobody wants to pay more than that for it.... 3GS retail price is about Rs.16000 in store if I am not mistaken.
Silly Apple. Trying to sell 8GB Iphone 4 version without no external storage in high price point function is the dumbest idea I had read.
Why not get a moto g? Or a nexus 4 for 100$ more. This phone is about 4 years old!!
AnonD-134749, 14 Jan 2014Ya more Ch0ice for India and apple fan. Ch0iceIt's only Choice when consumer choose..not when company choose
this makes no sense, they could have re-released the 4s because next year the 4 will stop getting the iOS updates, if not by this year and then they apps in the app store will be unuseable, the main reason people buy this phone is for the apps, and when you take away app use you are left with a very boring phone, happened to me with my iPhone 3G, they will lose customers indefinitely by doing that.
The 4s would be much smarter, or just release the 5 at a cheaper price?
The 5 and 5s look less like toys because of the bigger screen.
AnonD-151727, 14 Jan 2014aaaw how cuteYa more Ch0ice for India and apple fan. Ch0ice
What? are you serious man ? this outdated phone is coming back and they are selling it for $244. it is better to buy a micromax canvas 4 or canvas turbo instead of this this outdated phone,canvas HD is also better than this. Moto G is also much better deal then this it has quad-core processor,bigger screen & much better GPU only for $200 with 16gb storage intead of 8gb.
AnonD-134749, 14 Jan 2014Is this a iJoke ?? Rs 15k that too with exchange that mean outright it will cost Rs 20k at ha... moreAdding to it Lumia 525 has 2k worth free games, remove able battery, better camera, hardware camera button,better graphics processor, HERE maps and navigation much much better than apple failed maps and you can send files via Bluetooth and best its half the cost.
