Indian customers can now book their 3G iPhone as Vodafone and Airtel threw open online bookings for the most awaited product on Indian markets. Both companies have introduced pre-registration for the iPhone 3G on their Web sites.
The iPhone 3G was released by Apple CEO Steve Jobs at the Apple World-Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this month. The iPhone 3G is priced at $199 (8GB model) and $299 (16GB model) in US and will soon be available 22 countries from July 11, 2008 (Not India).
Some of the novel features in the new version include fast 3G wireless technology, GPS mapping, support for enterprise features like Microsoft Exchange, and the new App Store. Users will be able to download innovative applications using the App Store, while the 3G feature allows then to download email over fast 3G cellular networks.
In an advertisement in The Times of India, Vodafone said as much, adding that some 3G features may not work in India as the iPhone is currently compatible only with 2G networks.
