  1. Hi

    A bit of relief. Now airtel is providing option of EMI to buy iPhone (www.airtel.in/iphone3g). At least, now people who were

    expecting to be in range of 16-20K can think again to buy it with EMI option. What you say guys? Can we hope to get its price

    down in future as well?

  2. Hi

    There is a myth in the market place on low pricing of the product (reference price point being Rs. 8000 or Rs.12000/- which

    refers to AT&T pricing of USD 199 or USD 299).

    The reports don’t factor the commitment which a customers needs to give for a particular Price Plan for a period of 24 Months

    in the case of AT&T. For O2 the commitment is for 18 months with selected plans.

    But, if we calculate other cost like montly rental for voice, i.e., 69.99 (USD), the total cost of ownership for the period

    of 24 months for a 8 GB model comes around Rs.81000/-! The total cost of ownership for O2 is around Rs.200000/- over a period

    of 18 months.

    In first look it looks high, but in long term, it is still cheaper in India. So, don’t stop urself from buying this lovely

    gadget…
