Airtel today announced that they will launch Phone 3GS in India on March 26, 2010.The device will be available in two models iPhone 3GS 16 GB and iPhone 32 GB. The 16 GB model will cost Rs. 35,500, while the 32GB will cost RS 41,500(OMG) and there is no change in the cost of older 8GB 3G version(RS 29,500).

iPhone 3GS is the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet, packed with incredible new features including improved speed and performance – up to twice as fast as iPhone 3G – with longer battery life, a high-quality 3 megapixel autofocus camera, easy to use video recording and hands free voice control.

Airtel also announced a ridiculous data plan, that they will give the 500MB of free data every month for an entire year.But there is no sound about iphone 3GS from vodafone which also launched iphone 3G in India.

I wonder that no private mobile operator has 3G network, but they are offering 3G mobiles. Although BSNL is providing 3G network in limited telecoms circles, but until now it managed to get only 9000 subscribers all over India.

If you want iPhone 3GS, you can purchase it from Airtel authorized retail stores across India,for more information headover to
