However my expectation came a cropper with Vodafone spelling out that its iPhone pricing stands at 31000 rupees. This immediately puts the iPhone out of my reach, not just from the affordability issue, but from 'Huge price tag for features I won't be able to use' viewpoint.
Two things glare out.....
- 3G iPhone with no 3G service in India
- No gurantee of any bundled data plans with iPhone.
Which means I am shelling out 31K for a hyped up techno gadget with two of its much vaunted features unlikely to be of any use to me.
I have already put my iPhone purchase plans on hold. My investment will go into a Nokia or Samsung if I do not see any improvement in the next 6 months.
