Priority Customers to get Subsidized iPhone 4S in India

As we saw earlier with the launch of iPhone 4S in india courtesy Aircel and Airtel, both of them quoting higher prices for iPhone 4S with more than 200$ difference as compared to the United States unlocked iPhone 4S prices, making it one of the costliest iPhone 4S around the world.

Apparently there’s a good news for “Priority” customers, BGR has reported about one of the carriers is planning to offer some sorts of discounts/special deals for users with high amount of usage of the carrier services. It would probably be an invitation only offer i.e carriers would select their Priority customers with higher usage and with clear history (no defaulter record) and would offer as much as 50% subsidy for preferred customers.

This program is expected to be started by the mid December or so. So this Christmas season expect some great deals for your iPhone 4S in India :D

With the launch of iPhone 4S scheduled on 25th November and with pre-ordering already started, Aircel has done its bit to gather more customers by introducing attractive tariff plans.

Aircel alongwith Airtel are the only ones as of now who have pioneered the sale of iPhone 4S in India.

With the success that iPhone 4S received in Europe and America,there is no doubt that it will follow suite in India too. with the increasing popularity of smartphones more and more consumers are getting attracted to buying one of their own iPhone 4S which is considered to be a status symbol now-a-days. Also, the die hard fans of the Apple product would also like to get their hands on the new kid on the block. And with the introduction of  Siri the proposal becomes all but tempting to replace the old iPhone versions with the new one.
