In India, Apple is still struggling to make its presence in the smartphone segment. The main hurdle for iPhone to be shipped here is its price. For the Indian folks, it seems more expensive compare to some Android handsets. But now, the scenario is going to be changed because Aircel is offering Apple’s iPhone 3GS for just INR 9,999. Indeed, a significant number of folks could afford to own the device across the country. But, for getting something big, there’s a need of some initial investments, and that’s why, Aircel is charging an advance rental of INR 3,000 apart from the cost of the device.

Pros Of The Offer

Aircel is offering 3G connectivity for 12 months across the country (within its 3G circles), but where 3G networks are not available, it’s offering an attractive data plan for 2G networks’ users. The telecom vendor is offering to circles (where only 2G networks)  1,000 minutes of local and STD calls, 2,500 local and national SMS and an unlimited 2G data plan for 6 months. But, where 3G networks are available, users can use unlimited Aircel’s 3G connectivity for 12 months. However, the telecom vendor has limited the speed after consumption of 2 GB data to 128 kbps in every months. After completion of the data plan period, user can continue their services at the rational price. In addition to these, iPhone 3GS has been listed for upcoming iOS 6 updates. It could be an additional benefit for the device owners.

Specifications Of iPhone 3GS

At present, it’s not rationale to compare iPhone 3GS with some other high-end Smartphones, not even with iPhone 4S. But, the device is for those who want Apple’s Smartphone for the nominal price. However, it does not mean that the device is less competitive. Really, there’s need to explain the specification of the device in brief. iPhone 3GS has 3.5 inch capacitive TFT touch screen (having 320 x 480 pixels resolutions), 3G, EDGE/GPRS support, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth, GPS support, 3.15 MP camera with video recording at 30 fps and 600 MHz Cortex A8 processor.

Cons Of iPhone 3GS

The plan of the device is valid for post-paid users, but not for pre-paid users. In India, 90% users are using pre-paid services. It means, it’s difficult to claim that Aircel could entice a considerable numbers of users across the country. At present, the device seems little obsolete compare to some other high-end devices. The offer is fruitful for 3G networks, but for 2G networks, the offer seems descent.

  1. There are many other smart phones in the android category which have better hardware than this outdated iphone 3S. Even a not so big brand like Spice has come out with smart phones have come out with some unbelievable hardware features for less than 10k. same with Micromax and Lava. The whole exercise by Aircel will not cut much ice with the customers.
