iPhone 4S will be officially coming to India on November 25. Aircel and Airtel will be bringing the latest and greatest iPhone to India. Aircel will be opening up a pre-ordering page on Nov 18.
iPhone 4S doesn’t come cheap though. By far, iPhone 4S will be the most expensive smartphone in the market. The lowest is available at Rs. 41850 for the 16 GB version. 32 GB version costs Rs. 50250 and 64 GB version costs Rs. 58650.
While you still have to consider several things before buying Siri laden iPhone, 16 GB version might be a better bet. With the cloud integration and the 3G speeds you might not need all of the GB and the memory might be lying idle for its life time.
Now I have said several things about iPhone 4S. That it is all about Siri and nothing else, or 4S turned out to be an elephant fart. But when it comes to the judgment day Apple products have a knack of pulling them to their side. I would like to be swept away by Apple. I really do.
But there are 2 additional things in addition to the 4 things I have already listed which are weighing against iPhone 4S. There is a widely discussed, liberally publicized and poorly fixed battery problems. After the 5.0.1 upgrade there are whole new issues ranging from WiFi signal loss to network reception problems.
If I chose to ignore them then there is this rumor that a 8GB iPhone 4 is lurking and it would be priced at Rs. 21000 replacing iPhone 3G S. That proposition makes it even more difficult for me.
Buying an Apple product was never this tough. Let’s ask Siri.
Q : Siri should I buy iPhone 4S or should I wait for the cheaper iPhone 4?
Siri : Hmnnnn
