Hi, i am from India and i have been using all the i devices since the beginning and usually get my device from the US within a month of launch or so..and its the same with most of my friends.
I have always wondered why apple has ignored such a good market for their products, whereas RIM has captured this market really well. I think one of the main reasons blackberry is more popular here is because apple has not really penetrated the market.The devices are launched so late that all the charm is lost.
@Jahooba...as suggested you should come down here to understand what India is all about

I was in india a year back and the iPhone experience is not how it is for me otherwise. Yes, working on an edge connection wich is not stable most of the time is not a nice thing at all. Yes I know 3G is available now, but I beleive the rates are high. How many you know who use 3G now ?

Imho apple are idiots to not launch iphone early in india! None of their models have been successful in india due to their dumb ignorance in the indian market..indians will not buy their outdated iphone4 esoecially when iphone5 is out in the corner

yes 3g is available now, as of now service providers are providing 3g for free to get the users hooked..after that they will start charging. I have gone through various packages and the charges are quite reasonable.

Same with iphones, People in India buy the iphone for 900$ even thought its locked to a US carrier. But people in US would never pay the un-subsidized rate for the iphone. lol.

It's a bit too late in my opinion. I think most people who would buy an iPhone 4 have already done so thru the grey market, the others might still go for it provided the price is competitive. Most people willing to spend that kind of money in India for a phone will probably be buying blackberries.
I myself am an iPhone fan but just feel it is too late for apple to enter India with 4 maybe coming in with 5 would be better else they will not get a good feel for the Market and might wash their hands of it

Ya you right lot now iphone 4 is common in India.If the carriers offer some good schemes then may be people willing to buy it otherwise their is no chance for that.
