Official Price Announcement of iPhone 3G in India by Vodafone

Today, Vodafone has annnounced its official price for Indian version of Apple iPhone 3g.

According to Vodafone: “”We are delighted to announce that the iPhone 3G will be available in India from August 22, 2008. It will be available in 8GB & 16GB models, priced at Rs 31,000 ($710) and Rs 36,100 ($820) respectively. ”

I got an SMS from Vodafone. It reads ” Your wait is about to end! iPhone 3G arrives on August 22. 8GB Model is for Rs 31000 and 16GB for 36100. To get your iPhone before others, visit one of the select Vodafone Stores and confirm your booking by paying Rs 10000 on August 20 or 21. You’ll get an appointment to collect your iPhone after paying the balance amount. For list of the select Vodafone Stores, go to Save this SMS-you need to show it at Vodafone Store for confirmation”

  • and whats th gurantee that apple wont release a newer version with the all the updates that are missing? im sure the price drop is a few weeks away…and as ive herd right thry have alredy started working on a new verison on the iphone called iphone 3g X…thats what u news is…price expected is aroung 179$…see if u find nething at all abt this…n keep waiting…for more updates from me…c ya…

  • Suppose if theres a phone is the best in the world does it mean u will pay up a Lakh of rupees for it? its like paying up 36k for a piece that is locked to vodafone….mayb rich guys like u can afford it…but i c no point…it lacks a 5mp cam…no video recording…loads of things missing then y pay a premium? for a revolutionary iphone without the basic thing that a normal nokie phone lacks?

  • Hi

    I am surprised to see all of you shocked with the price. This is exactly what was expected and by
    the way iPhones features are revolutionary and the price is justified.
    Respect the hard work that poeple have put in to develop this mind freaking device, because kind of great features and enhanced user interface it has, it justifies it cost.


  • @shantanu: It look like Vodafone will bring Rs 2000 discount price on iPhone 3G

  • these guys whats wrong with them why hike up a price so much only to bring it down after a few weeks, seriously guys this was THE AWAITED PHONE and the pricing but now due to this ridiculous pricing the impact will get diluted.

  • what do they think indians are fools .
    i mean launching the same phone in other foriegn countries for the price range of 8000 to 14000rs , and in india for the price mentioned above .
    what have they kept in mind when they where taggin the price for the iphone .
    i seriousely doubt their market if the price dont come down as soon as possible .
