New version of IPhone affordable

When iphone was first released, I was awed by it and immediately wanted one. But it was one whole year before it came to India and even when it came to India it costed a whopping 32,000 rs. When we weigh it with the positives and negatives, it felt as if it would be waste investment. But with the newly released iphone 3G s,  it looks the price will come into affordable regions in India. 

If the report in Tech2 is true, then I will surely considering getting one. The iPhone is a game-changer in the mobile phone market, considering that 1 billion apps are downloaded from the app-store.  

Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen, you’re not going to believe this, the new iPhone 3G S is due to be out on June 19th of 2009 and here are the prices –

The 16GB version is going to be priced at Rs. 9,452 ($199) and Rs. 14, 202 ($299) for 32GB. It gets better; Apple also announced that they planned on keeping an 8GB version priced at Rs. 4,702 ($99) for a while on the markets. Of course all the above mentioned prices are seem so low because they are on contract with their respective service providers. You can expect the phone to be sold at its full price once it lands on Indian shores, since our service providers just don't love us as much! 

What are your thoughts on it?
