iPhone 4 goes on sale in India The Apple iPhone 4 has finally made its way to India, 11 months after its global launch.
India has 800 million mobile phone subscribers but 3G has been slow to rollout in the nation, making smartphones a tougher sell. Smartphone sales only account for 5 percent of all mobile sales.

Aircel will sell the 16GB iPhone 4 for 34,500 rupees ($764 USD) or 40,900 rupees ($906 USD) for the larger 32GB version.

Bharti Airtel, the clear market leader in the country, will have similar pricing, and does already offer older models of the iPhone.

In 2011, however, Aircel and others have begun aggressive rollouts of 3G services and smartphone sales are expected to double in 2011 year-over-year.
