According to our sources, the iPhone 3GS is launching this week on 24th of March or at-least the bookings are opening.

iPhone 3GS

There’s confusion wheather only Airtel and Vodafone will be the operators or Airtel , Vodafone , Reliance GSM and Aircel will be involved.

Like previous iPhone’s, the 3GS too will come with a dataplan and will be locked to the network providing the handset for a year. You’ll have to pay around Rs.33500 approx for the 16gb version and Rs.42000 approx for the 32gb version.

The next generation of iPhone, the iPhone 4G is all set to hit the US market but India still havn’t got the 3GS one. This is all due to delay of auction of 3G bandwith.

Let’s wait and watch wheather this rumour turns out to be true one or not. Till then saty tuned.
