I did not expect to be writing another Apple iPhone 3G post, not after the marathon of posts and comments we had prior to the (failed) August launch of the iFail iPhone in India. But here I am again, telling you all that BSNL (yes, them ) are coming out with the iPhone in December of this year.
According to the Financial Express, SK Chakravarty BSNL will be launching the iPhone along with the 3G network in December. “On September 30, we will have a meeting of the circle heads where we may take a decision on making iPhones available to our consumers,” said Chakravarty.
Back in June, we all saw the Vodafone iPhone advertisement on the front page of the TOI, and Airtel announce pre-booking the very next day. The BSNL launch is something we never expected. Lets hope they can at least have the price lower than their competitors. Edit: Hope?! Why am I even bothered about buying a phone that I _know_ lacks features and will be overpriced?
