Apple iPhone 5 in India

Finally there are reports that Apple iPhone 5 is going to be officially launched in India on October 26th,2012.


iPhone 5 not carrier specific in India

Another good news is that this year the iPhone 5 wont be  sold by Airtel and Aircel, the official distributors of Apple iPhone in India. Instead Apple will be selling it directly and so there wont be any long contract periods with the carriers.

India is one of the countries where the samrtphone usage is increasing rapidly. But still iPhone is being used by only a few here. Tim Cook, Apple CEO, does recognize the importance of India to iPhone – a country which has fast growth rates in smartphone usage. So, isn’t the reason behind iPhone 5 being distributed by Apple clear ?

The price of iPhone 5 in India could be around the same price as that of iPhone 4S introductory price in India. (which will definitely be more than $800).
