India upset over iPhone 4S prices

i-phone-4sNew Delhi: Indian Market is expressing discontent over the price of iPhone 4S. The social networking sites are abuzz with comments deriding the smartphone maker Apple. At its launch price of Rs 44,500, the iPhone 4S will indeed be costlier in India than anywhere else in the world, though it will be available about 10% cheaper on several online shopping sites such as ebay. In the US,  the smartphone retails at 35% less than the official price announced in India. The price was announced on the websites of Bharati Airtel and Aircel.
In fact, all Apple products are priced significantly higher in India than in the US, Singapore and Hong Kong. Yet, Indian customers will not benefit from getting somebody to buy the phone for them from the US or Singapore. That is because, unlike the iPad and Apple’s range of personal computers, the iPhone does not come with an international warranty.The warranty for iPhone 4S will be valid only in the country in which the phone is purchased. The 32-GB iPhone 4S will cost Rs 50,900 while the high-end with 64 GB comes at Rs 57,500. The lowest priced iPhone 4S at Rs 44,500 comes with 16 GB memory.
