Apple might open it’s own Retail Stores in India soon according to a report by LiveMint which quotes an unnamed source in a government body Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion. The Indian government has approved 100% Foreign Direct Investment FDI in Single Brand Retail recently. So such a move by Apple will not be surprising,as they have massive expansion plans for Asia. Apple has not commented much about India in particular in the past but the quick launch of the iPad 2 with decent pricing and iPhone 4S with crazy pricing are indications of things to come.  The most popular tablet I see when I travel in India is the iPad and I have spotted a lot of iPhones as well.

Pictures and Impressions: 10 minutes with the iPhone4

Yesterday was my first day on the road again after my accident, that kept me out of everything for 4 weeks. I went to the local E-Store to buy a brand spanking new DSLR camera, and in doing so, i met a friend, who bought my “old” cam from me. What i forgot about was, that he recently bought a brand new iPhone4. Now you might wonder why i write about the jesus phone, when i usually rant against it. Well simple, i still dont like the iOS but designwise, Cupertino has hit the spot with this one. When i saw the pics on Gizmodo leaking, i wished nothing more that they’ll keep it and its not a simple prototype design. and they did. And i’m sorry Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, HTC, etc., but what you see here, is the best looking phone in recent history!
