Airtel which is one of the leading mobile operators in India has started taking Pre-Orders for the Apple iPhone 5 on its website. Airtel is promoting the iPhone 5 on its homepage and has requested interested customers to pre-order the device. The date of availability is mentioned as November 11th 2012 which is a good 10 days later than the previous November 2nd date we have been hearing from distributors.The prices seem to be exactly the same as what we had heard prior to this.
Sadly only the 16GB black version is available for pre-order right now. No sign of the white model or the other capacities. Hopefully that will change before the actual launch. If you want the iPhone 5 but are not impressed with the expensive price tag ,an EMI option might be coming soon. Aircel has also started teasing the iPhone 5 on its homepage but not yet started taking pre-orders.
Thx to @ajithkingsley for the tip !
