Apple's iPhone is finally out!!

Apple's eagerly awaited and (grossly) over-hyped iPhone has finally arrived as promised on the 29th of June, 2007. Love it or hate it, but you can't ignore it. The iPhone will hit Indian shores in early 2008 though, insiders say that it could be as early as as November 2007.

Unofficially though, you can get the iPhone pretty soon from the grey markets of National Bazar or Majestic Area in Bangalore for around Rs. 30,000. Since the phone is locked i.e. Apple has tied up for an exclusive tie up with AT&T, you can get it unlocked for anything between Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 1,500 to make it work with any GSM network in India.

Needless to say, entertainment companies have come out with special iPhone ready trailers and movies. A wide collection of downloadable media items.

The large screen of the iPhone means you can thoroughly enjoy videos/movies and hopefully this one factor should itself drive sales here in India. I for one just can't wait to get my hands on the iPhone. The phone it too cool to be ignored. Do let me know what you think about the iPhone, whether you would buy one or not and more importantly, what would you do with the awesome multimedia capabilities of the iPhone in the comments.
