Vodafone Essar taking iPhone 3G to India Apple Inc.'s iPhone 3G is being introduced to the emerging and rapidly growing Indian economy, with a very high price tag attached. Vodafone Essar will sell the 8GB model of the iPhone 3G in the country for as much as 31,000 rupees, about USD$708. The device will also be available from Vodafone Essar's largest rival in the Indian market, Bharti Airtel.
Both operators will make the phones available to consumers this Friday. Vodafone Essar will offer the 16GB version of the iPhone 3G for 36,100 rupees, about USD$824. In comparison, you can get an iPhone 3G in the United States for as little as $199 based on the circumstances.

Bharti Airtel will announce its price for the new iPhone model soon, according to a company spokesman. Apple just released a software update addressing problems with reception, dropped calls and other issues being reported from around the world.
