iPhone 4 On Airtel Launch By October

The world may be talking about bumpers, antennagate and proximity sensors. But here in India, most people are still oblivious of that fact primarily because of two reasons – Apple is virtually non-existent here and iPhone 4 has not launched as yet.

That could change by September or October. This is according to Sanjay Kapoor who is presently the Bharti Airtel CEO for India and South Asia. While Kapoor did not delve much into the specifics about the launch date and pricing, it is believed to be priced close to 40,000 a piece (oops!).

A launch in October will also mean users will not be receiving the famed free-bumper that Apple has now been sending to all its customers after their new phone was found to be incapable of making phone calls. As Steve Jobs had noted, these bumpers will only be made available through September.

So there you go. Will you be shelling out 40K for an iPhone 4? Or will you go for the vastly superior Samsung Galaxy S that is priced much more reasonably?
