Finally I managed to pick up a White iPhone 4 from Airtel today. Officially launched by Apple, this Factory Unlocked iPhone is available in India within a month after its International debut, which is just great . The feel and look of this phone is just mind blowing. Here are few pics I clicked

I have been still waiting for iPhone 3GS to be launched in India. In the meanwhile, last week I gave my iPhone 3G to Apple Store for servicing; reason – iPhone’s home button’s double click wasnt working fine, some issue with the home button. And my battery indicator was behaving abnormally at times, would show the bolt indicator even though it wasnt fully charged.
Guess what happened after a week; Apple send me a brand new iPhone 3G instead of repairing it. AWESOME. I am now going GaGa over my new iPhone 3G. I made sure that my iPhone warranty was in place when I sent my old iPhone for servicing ))

I picked up my iPhone 3G this morning at 7.30. Yupppieee…. I felt as excited as I did when I picked up my iPhone 1st Gen last Nov in Mumbai (My friend brought it from the US). This was just great. Even though the price was a bit high, I just couldn’t resist picking up this awesome gadget from Airtel Store here in Bangalore. I was the first customer at that store which opened at 7.30am just to sell iPhone 3G. Apple formally launched iPhone 3G in India today i.e., 22nd Aug 2008.
I have now plugged my 3G on to my iTunes and syncing all my data, music, sms’s, stock quotes, contacts etc. of my 1st gen version. Its almost done. This is just awesome. I am so damn excited Even though I cannot open iTunes being in India, I can access AppStore and download any app and start using. I have synced my Indian Credit Card with iTunes and its working seamlessly.
Let me share few of the initial pictures that I shot from my sony phone this morning. This might not be needed, but as I mentioned earlier, I am just too excited. So just pardon me, if you feel I am going crazy. Once this is done, I will get back to my work )

I just bought www.iphoneindiablog.com from godaddy.com. You can now type iphoneindiablog.com and get to this blog of mine. But I don’t intend to move all these pages to the new domain anytime soon. This new domain name will be forwarded to iphoneindia.gyanin.com for now. Thanks again for visiting my blog. Do mail me at devgupt[at]gmail[dot]com… mDev05

Well, I sold my 1st gen iPhone two weeks back for Rs.16,000 ($400) on bangalore.craigslist.org. Definitely happy with this deal… Waiting for 3G iPhone desperately. Missing my iPhone like mad. Infact my son, Tanish (2.5yrs) is missing my iPhone as well; he used to spend around 1-2 hrs every evening, playing two of his favorite games – Towers of Hanoi & Block Puzzle (as well as Sketches)
Anyways, now that we all are waiting for 11th July, lets hope that Zibri/Pawnage unlocks 3G iPhone within hours.
3G iPhone with GPS and better battery life should definitely ROCK. 3G should happen by end of this year in India, hopefully! See you guys soon…
Hi, I have been using this awesome invention called iPhone in Bangalore, India from November 2007 and have gone nutzzz over this.
Nuts to an extent that I have started my own blog on iPhone. I will be covering various developments happening around Apple iPhone. Will cover everything and anything which is even remotely connected to the iPhone. But will put more emphasis on iPhone news and buzz from an Indian perspective.
BTW, I need to apologize for all those misspelled words that you would invariably find in my blog. Its not that my English is bad (it’s not that good either ), but just that I like to type real quick and am too lazy to go back and do a spell check before posting the blog. And at the same time, I would like to keep posting every iPhone news that breaks out as soon as possible.
Thanks and keep reading my blog,
