iPhone 4S India Prices. Why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di?
iPhone 4S India prices suggests that it is not for the the category of smartphone buyers who buy a smartphone within the price range of Rs. 25,000 to 35,000.
iPhones have been priced lavishly since the beginning but current prices are a bit too much, specially when you can get the same from US at a much lesser price. Here is table comparing US and India prices of iPhone 4S.
Note: Conversion Rate : $1 = INR 52.34, as per Google Currency converter on 30th November 2011 at 2:14 PM
So, if you really want to buy an iPhone 4S, get it from USA or some other country where it is prudently priced. However, take a note of the warranty issues, as if you buy an iPhone from any other country you won’t get any warranty in India.
I asked people to share their views on the pricing, here is what they way to say
Giridhar Chandrasekar (From MobiGyaan Team) – iPhone is a huge success world-wide just for its user experience and pricing. In the Indian context pricing over-weighs any other factor. Do you really expect a regular Indian consumer to shell out 50k for a phone just because of its high user experience? I guess the re-sellers wanted to make a pricing difference between iPhone 4 and 4S and hence the high-pricing.
Mihir Patil (From MobiGyaan Team) – lol iPhone 4s is half the price of Nano.. sgs2 wid btr specs comes for 28k. Highly priced..only apple fanboys can afford it ;)
Kiran Ruth R – the price of the iPhone 4S in india .. i can order an acer ultrabook …… Just too costly …..
Jeet Dholakia – iPhone 4S is for rich people only nt for any middle class,cant even think to buy this costliest siri ,instead I’ll go for SGS2

Animesh Bhatt – the way I see it, iPhone4S is way too expensive.. not worth the cost.. just extra Siri, that cud get boring after a while..
