Well , Everyones love is finally here . Apple’s Iphone 3g probably has been the most anticipated phone ever . The long wait was finally over yesterday as the people were able to hold something that they wanted the most .
Two versions of iphone have been realeased one with 8 gb memory and the other one 16 gb and they cost around RS 31000 and RS 36000 respectively . Well, that might shock you as the iphone costs in US just around 200 $ which is around 8000 Rupees.
The phone comes either with airtel or vodaphone subscription similar to AT&T in US , which means that once u buy it u cannot change the network . Ofcourse , you can always unlock the phone but be ready to loose your warranty .
I read an interesting post by Soham yesterday who has written his experiece with iphone till . You can read it full here . HE has mentioned why he loves his iphone so much but the interesting thing which caught my attention was some of the limitations he mentioned like no sms fowrwarding, no camera zoom , cant transfer files from bluetooth (wonder why they have kept bluetooth then ) etc .
Most importantly ,the word 3g itself is quite meaningless in india as there are no 3g networks available here in india . And i dont see it coming any soon . So personally i dont feel ITs right time to buy iphone .
I have always wanted to buy an iphone ever since it was launched in US but then i guess the price is a big hurdle for me ,perhaps it would be for almost every middle class inidan . I am just waiting for all the craze to get over . I am sure the price would drop below 20k mark soon then i can lay my hands on it . People who are seriously interested in buying iphone at a cheaper price can either wait like me or can settle with this for now .

Well , After Nokia its the now iphones turn to have a duplicate from korean market .I knew that there have been duplicate models of NOKIA N series from korean counterparts ,( Infact i have even written a post about that..You can check them out here ) ,But i was dumbfound when i found that that now even iPhone ‘s duplicates are being available at a very cheap price.
Apple had planned to release iPhone in india by next year but the unlocked versions of it are already available in the market at about 25000 bucks .A.nd if you have a paypal account it would be easier to buy it even online.And now with the duplicate models of it hitting the market the apple is set to incurr huge losses if they delay the release further.
The above pic shows one of the clones of iPhones .Yes you heard me right, one of the clones.While i was serching for these Iphones i found more than one versions of iphone each having different configuration and price .Well,quite franklly i dont know whether these come from CHINA or korea but what i know is these phones serve a good option when it comes to the desperate souls who want to have the pleasure of flaunting their phones at a cheap price of about 6000 to 7000 bucks.
Flabbergasting isn’t it???
Some of these iPhone clones even comes with features that are not even in the original iPhone like fingerprint sensor , handwriting recognition software ,dual sim card holder (dont know if original has one ) .
Other features like multimedia capabilities , camera ,connectivity are also available camera resolusion may differ freom clone to clone.However,one disadvantage in these clones are that you may not get a warranty for this peice so just in case you find your iPhone clone in trouble get urself ready to get a whole new peice again .
I dont know which of the clones are available out here in india . Check out some of the Iphone clones
SO , ALL those of you yearning for having a Iphone in your hand have three options
- Get one of the clones but you might have to Compromise with the quality
- Get an unlocked version of Iphone if you are ready to Shed 25000 bucks.
- LAST option keep waiting till the APPLE announces the offical date for its own iphone launch.
