At WWDC 2009, Apple announced that the new iPhone 3G[S] would be available for purchase starting June 19th. What Apple did not clearly specify was a launch date for the 3G[S] in India. However, Apple did say that the new iPhone would be launched in July in some countries, and as far away as August in other countries (like India). Remember when the iPhone 3G was released? It was June. And later, I wrote about the iPhone 3G releasing in India in AugustAirtel came out first with the iPhone in India, Vodafone later officially announced the same, and BSNL came in a distant last with an announcement in September.  So by all probability, the expected date for the new iPhone 3G[S] release in India will most probably be in August. There weren’t any long queues, neither were a lot of iPhone pre-bookings made because of the Rs.36,000 price tag. You can be sure that this time too, for the iPhone 3G[S], the initial price will still be around the Rs.30,000+ range. As for the iPhone 3G, the expected market trend is that when something new comes out, the old must either get a price drop, or be discontinued. Most of us are expecting a price drop, to something at the range of Rs.25,000 – Rs.30,000.
