Airtel to sell iPhone 3GS in India

Today, Bharti Airtel agreed to sell Apple’s iPhone 3GS in India in the coming months. Airtel is India’s largest mobile phone operator by users. Yesterday, it had also submitted its bid to participate in a bandwidth auction for 3G services, and the successful bidders would be allowed to offer 3G services on commercial basis from September 1, 2010.

We had also covered this story in June 2009, but the deal has happened now and it looks like only Airtel would be selling iPhone 3GS in India.

Update: You can now check the official iPhone 3GS page on Airtel’s website. There will be two models of iPhone 3GS – 16 GB and 32 GB, both available in black and white colours. Prices have not yet been disclosed.

So what are your opinions on the deal? Do let us know by commenting below!
