iPhone you've been waiting for

So who wants to buy iPhone in India??

There is no mandatory connection bond like in SA or US (you can take a connection and close it next month, phone is yours) but the price is also not having any consideration for it then.

Who actually want to shed >30,000/- Rs for a phone which is mainly hyped for its 3G which is not in India (it will take time) and also current iPhone are having issues even if 3G facility is available??

But other than that.. it is iPhone:) no denying it:).

See below details which are being sent by Vodafone for iPhone in India -
Hello User,
Thank you for registering for your Apple iPhone 3GTM with us.
We are delighted to announce that the iPhone 3G will be available in India from August 22, 2008It will be available in 8GB & 16GB models, priced at Rs 31,000 and Rs 36,100 respectively.

iPhone 3G issue! Did you buy it already??

iPhone new version is very much sought for its 3G feature and what the irony is? 3G is not working very well for this phone.

There are many reasons being given for this issue which range from it being a hardware fault because of its antenna and amplifier, or because of chip itself being faulty. Software faults are being reasoned for incorrect settings. You can have a more detailed look on these at - http://www.macrumors.com/2008/08/14/iphone-3g-connection-issues-related-to-software-or-hardware/.

Whatever being the reason, problem is that Apple is not addressing the issue. Forget about addressing it, it is not even acknowledging that issue is there with iPhone. So what is going to happen - Are people going to dump their phone which they have bought with so much enthusiasm? It is yet to be seen that iPhone 3G is going to crash because of its popularity or its popularity will make Apple keep itself up to the mark and provide a good solution.

Wait and Watch:)

Is Singh really King?

Seen Singh is king movie recently. It was a much hyped movie where we heard that it is given some 4.5 starts in rating for its worth. Even some news channels were talking about how Akshay has brilliantly acted in this movie and how charming Katrina is looking in it. Both statements are actually true.
So if you are going to see movie for Akshay and Katrina only, go for it. You won't loose anything, but if you want to enjoy a movie and come out dancing or laughing - Na, na, na... This is not one of that. May be it is just me but at least people sitting on both side of me were also of same view so I think I can generalise a bit. Story was bogus. Till half time, even though it didn't had any sense but still it was ok. After half time, it was like it is being stretched without any logic.
Ok, ok we should not put any logic while seeing movies but something should be there, right? I don't want to spoil the fun for you so will not provide specifics, but whatever turns movie was talking, it was not reflecting in action of characters (supporting ones) and also I was not able to digest why it is happening.
No good songs either. Too much talked about title song is not that great. It was pushed in movie just for- don't know why.
Katrina looked good and Akshay is anyway has improved in his acting a lot, but that much only is not worth my 100 bucks. You take your call..

iPhone coming to India

It is a wonderful news that iPhone is getting launched soon in India. Airtel and Vodafone both are trying hard to cash this opportunity. While Airtel has anounced it to launch on Aug 22 Vodafone is leading the way with starting it from Aug 18 itself. As such Vodafone was planning to do it much earlier than Airtel, but couldn't do so. See more details in here - http://www.pluggd.in/2008/08/iphone-in-india-airtel-to-launch-on-aug-22-vodafone

Also there was an issue reported with this 3G much discussed phone about battery life. Even though you are not using 3G, it goes on only for 1 whole day. Solution are already planned to hit market with one being a Solar charger which not only charges it, but covers it as well. Two-in-One :).
