PS: Apple is holding a major event on June 6th in USA and there is a slight chance of a new iPhone being launched. Apple has only confirmed that it will launch a new version of software for the iPhone. Other rumours indicate that that new iPhone will launch only in September this year. If you are really concerned about this , we suggest you wait till June 6th. But if have made up your mind yo get an iPhone4 from Airtel. Head over to the Store locator
