Apple is well known for the exclusivity associated with their products. They don"t compel users to buy their products by offering attractive discounts and options. They just make a product that ultimately turns out into a 'highly desired for" gadget. The company has so far launched their i-Phone models locked to select service providers only. The phone will not be compatible with other SIM cards. In India only Bharti Airtel and Aircel had exclusive rights to launch the model- i-Phone 4.
However the company is now facing stiff competition from the likes of Android and Windows based Smartphones. So the company has decided to shift its unique sales technique and decided to make the i-Phone more affordable and versatile in operations. The company has re-launched i-Phone 3GS in the Indian market at an unbelievable price of just Rs 19,990. The move is seen as an attempt by Apple to counter the stiff threat posed to it by the likes of Android and Windows Based Smartphones.
The most notable change in the re-launched i-Phone 3GS is however not just the price tag. The phone is available as a factory unlocked version which means that the users of the phone can make use of Sim cards provided by any telecom network provider in India as opposed to the monopoly enjoyed by certain network operators currently.
The new phone is already available at all leading stores in Mumbai and Delhi as per reports coming from the stocks department of these stores. i-Phone 3GS is definitely the only inexpensive phone available for many users who always wanted to get their hands on the i-Phone but was reluctant to do so because of the high price associated with it.
i-Phone 3GS is not new to the market. The phone has been around for almost two years now. The phone has enough reasons to get the buyers attention now that the prices have also been slashed and network exclusivity is removed. The Phone comes with a superfast 600 MHz processor and spots a 3.5 inch multi touch screen. The phone operates on the latest iOS 4.3 from Apple but the company has stated that the phone is capable of supporting the upcoming iOS 5. The phone is available in two colour options i.e. Black and White.
The re-launched i-Phone 3GS is Apple"s move to put up with the fight in the Smartphone market globally which is now dominated by Android powered phones. The new price tag will make the i-Phone 3GS compete with the likes of Samsung Nexus S,
