Let me verify that number from my source again.

Meanwhile, the joke doing around is that Apple is coming up with 'iLoan' product, so that Indians can lay their hands in 'iPhone' !!

I posted early, its all about 'madness' aint it? who cares about all this? i have been desperately hunting for a legit iPhone and i got it, i can afford it and no regrets.

HTC touch i bought for 18700 now is 13000, Nokia communicator i bought for 35 grand and sold for 7 grand a year later. Its madness that all, you like it, you buy it. Or just move on lol

Cant wait for next "one" to come out, but will it create so much hype? cheers:

Jaggu, Congrats on your iPhone!

Can you give us a brief comparo of iPhone and HTC Touch?

Wait for Diwali - these things will settle down at a more realistic price level of 25k for 8GB and 30k for 16GB. Or less, depending on how desperate they are.

EDIT: I believe this must be the fastest price-cut on a gadget/device so far in India? 3 days and Rs.2,000 off!
the price cut was done in bombay on the first day itself. in the night they opened noone bothered to go. they forgot its india and not new york. next morning of the 23 aug it already had the new price and selling...

HTC Touch is history - I dont even think they make it anymore, a more appropriate comparison would be the Touch Diamond.

Yogi - I upgraded to V2.0 and even I cannot enter the airtel settings. But edge works for me.

I read on the internet something called bosspref (something like that) - could allow you to enter the settings on your desktop/laptop and transfer to phone.

Ok try this APN Changer it should work, but dont hold me responsible if things go wrong. I think you need to have wifi to access it from iPhone since EDGE is disabled and you should have your APN name, password (if any) ready

Source is macrumors site.
