Vodafone finally releases iPhone prices , not affordable


I got this email from Vodafone today which released the prices of the iPhone.

Apple products don’t come cheap.

But how many of you will pay 31,000 for an iphone ?

I don’t think its affordable to most people . Also 3G does not make any sense in the indian context.

Vodafone has released the prices but still no news from my provider Airtel

Please leave a comment on your thoughts about the pricing for the iphone in india.
