Expected Price of Airtel and Vodafone iPhone in India

The blogosphere has been buzzing with news about the iPhone’s India launch. People have been hugely anticipating the pricing of the iPhone in India. Here’s what the Economic Times has to say. Apple iPhoneWe know that the iPhone will be priced at $199 in the USA, but what many of us do not know is that this is a subsidised price that Apple and AT&T have worked out. Going by market researcher iSuppli, each iPhone has been subsidised to the extent of $300! This subsidised rate is made up through higher call and SMS rates. What that means for us is that we may not be seeing Airtel and Vodafone’s iPhone priced at Rs. 8000, not with SMS and call rates in India being one of the cheapest in the world (with plans to decrease even further). The price may instead be at around Rs. 21,000. So would you be willing to pay 21,000 bucks for the new 8GB iPhone 3G when it hits Indian shores?

Quite Fed Up

..of this new theme. It’s good, but the overdose of colour is getting on my nerves. Expect a change any time soon. I’ve also taken up Preshit‘s advice on keeping the site, the blog and the tumblelog all looking the same. That’ll take time though! I wanted to make a surprise change, but I just CANNOT keep my anxiety controlled. So here’s a sneak preview: new theme

Feedly – The Best Web-Based Feed Reader for Firefox?

After having made my shift from RSSOwl to Google Reader, I was going through my feeds when an article on Webware caught my attention. It was about Feedly – the newest addition to the already existing hundreds of web-based RSS feed readers. So what’s unique about Feedly? For starters, it works only with Firefox and is installed as an addon. Feedly screenshot - The best web based feed reader Feedly integrates social-networking with your RSS feeds. For example, if you liked an article from your feed, you could easily share it with your friends over at Twitter. You could even add your Facebook account into it. Easily tweet an article from Feedly Feedly conveniently imported all my subscriptions (and even my name!) from Google Reader. All I had to do was give it the thumbs up, and it did the rest. The one thing Feedly lacks, which I got used to with Google Reader, was the feature of automatically marking a feed as read when you scrolled past it. Then again, Google Reader never functioned well with my scroll wheel. So I’m not complaining. There is another setback though, advertisements. I can’t stand them, and Feedly has containers ready to serve ads when the owner of the feed decides he wants to. I’m not too sure how to block them, but for now there are none since the service is quite new.
