iPhone 4 is right now the talk of the town – The slimmest Smartphone with highest resolution display phone is coming to India through Vodafone as per their latest press statement.
However, no other details are published yet on their website. It is expected that iPhone 4 may come to India as early as next month (July 2010).
Although, iPhone 4 has a huge drool factor, especially for gadget freaks – The most important question to be asked is –
At what price will iPhone 4 be available in India ?
Even during the launch of iPhone 3G everyone was quite excited, but went on to become a damp squib thanks to astronomical pricing.
So, let us play some guessing game and see what price tag we should expect on Indian iPhone 4.
In U.S iPhone 4 model comes to you with a 2 year AT&T Contract for $199 (16GB) & $299 (32GB).
They are not sold without a contract. Update: There is a no-contract, no-commitment price announced by AT&T – $599 for 16GB & $699 for 32GB (thanks @addepalli & @brajeshwar)
In India iPhone 3G was launched by Vodafone & Airtel between 35k to 40k with not many takers. Infact, iPhone 3G was a big flop in India. On Ebay, iPhone 3G/S model goes for roughly 32k to 33k.
Considering the iPhone 3G price point, we will have to assume that iPhone 4 will surely come with some sort of premium.
This is my personal guess – iPhone 4 (16GB) will cost around 40k – 42k, while the 32GB model be closer to 50k price point.
