Apple’s latest move will surely entice many smartphone users in India. The company has decided to withdraw the exclusive sales rights from Airtel and Aircel ending their monopoly in iPhone segment in India. This year both the companies won’t be selling the iPhone exclusively to prospects; rather, Apple has appointed “Ingram Micro” and “Redington” for distribution of iPhone 5 this year in India. The sales activities have also triggered to set the perfect launch pad for iPhone 5 in India. Surely, this will make a level playing field for all other Indian mobile carriers who couldn’t take advantage of enormous demand of iPhone earlier models.

However, Airtel and Aircel could have special tariffs for iPhone 5 which could still give fairly upper hand than others but the ‘non-confined commitment’ with a carrier will benefit users to choose their preferred network based upon their location and region. In fact all carriers could also roll out better tariff plans for iPhone 5 beating Airtel and Aircel.

Besides, the new setup will also help Apple to tag new iPhone 5 with far better competitive cost. This will surely help company to boost their sales performance and number in India market as Indian market is still being driven by price largely.

Sources have claimed that Apple is trying to setup a standardize price process for iPhone 5 across the globe. But, various taxation policies in every country is the biggest hindrance against the company to execute this plan. However, Apple is trying to squeeze the price gap utmost through such type of policies.

In U.S. 16GB iPhone 5 (Unlocked) model is tagged with $705 after all taxes and if Apple succeeds to maintain the price quite close, then iPhone 5 should be available in India with a price tag between $750 – $800 which is still quite a lucrative offer. Also, if Apple will manage to make it up, it would directly dent the potential market and grow at the cost of Samsung. With this estimated price tag, iPhone 5 will directly compete with Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III, resulting in poaching sizable number of Samsung users.

Users who buy iPhone 5 will have an option to replace their existing Sim Card with Nano Sim – used in iPhone 5. Also, the Nano Sim Card package will come with adaptor that could easily convert the Nano Sim card into Micro or Regular Sim card to fit it in any other regular smartphone.
