iPhone @ Rs. 31K?..Comparison with HTC Touch Diamond


iPhone @ Rs. 31K?..Comparison with HTC Touch Diamond

The news is already out that iPhone will be priced for Rs. 31K!

  • 8 GB version of the 3G iPhone will cost Rs 31,000
  • 16 GB version will cost between Rs 36,000-37,000.[ToI] –  Thanks Lokajit for the tip

Though the reports aren’t yet confirmed, it’s quite difficult to digest the fact that iPhone is priced for ~740$! (3.75 times the price in US?)

The price slash in US was primarily attributed to the fact that operators are taking a hit – Apple sells the handset to them @ $300 and operators subsidize the price so that they can milk the users later (data plan).

But Indian operators do not have any reason to subsidize the price – so here is the dope, a serious suggestion.

Go for HTC Touch Diamond. Here is the comparison:
