Sorry, that was some tech blog. Looks like they were way off mark.

Official price: $199 for the 16 GB, $299 for the 32 GB iPhone. Of course these are with AT&T contract. But out of contract should be in range of $600.

The iPhone 4G uses a micro SIM. Do we get these SIMs in India? If not we'll have to wait till carriers introduce the SIM and phone together. Traditionally Airtel and Vodafone have been Apple's partners so they ought to be first off the block with the intro and micro SIM cards. As for the others time will tell.

Cheers!

You can cut the regular GSM sim to make it micro sim, not a show stopper.

I am pretty sure that the iphone 4 will be launched in India by September. I'm still crossing my fingers that India is included in the 24 countries slated for release in August.

+1 That's more important for me

Meanwhile if anyone's noticed, the 3GS retailing @ $99 is now an 8GB model and not the 16GB verion we were all expecting.

D-oh !!

No. AFAIK only Italy has a law prohibiting locked phones being sold.
