Unlocked iPhone In India Coming en route France, 2 '07 Subject: Technology, Viewed by: 379
If you are an Apple fanboy residing in India who desperately wants an iPhone, just wait for some more time before you think of buying an unlocked set from the gray markets of Mumbai, Delhi or Bangalore.
That’s because Apple will officially release the unlocked iPhone in France next month that will work with GSM SIM card of any cellular network.
Once the unlocked iPhone hits the shelves of France, you may expect to see that India almost immediately - after all FedEx and DHL provide excellent shipping services.
eBay India could have been a better place to buy unlocked iPhones but due to their policies or agreement with Apple, they are not allowing auctions or sale of any unlocked iPhone handset on their website.
The current price of an unlocked iPhone on Rediff shopping is around 34k - just double the US price. That price should come down drastically once the iPhone becomes available in France.
Even Reliance is opening Apple Store in India but they won’t stock iPhones for now.
