Bharti Airtel, Apple in pact to bring iPhone 3G to India

Bharti Airtel and Apple have announced a pact to bring iPhone 3G to customers in India later this year. An official from Apple said, “The phone will be launched during the festive season, and the marketing and advertising plans will be revealed later.”

Manoj Kohli, President and CEO, Bharti Airtel, said, “We are delighted at the opportunity to bring the innovative iPhone 3G to India. As India’s leading telecom operator, Bharti Airtel has always stood for innovation and customer delight. With our reach across the country and iPhone’s revolutionary features, we have a valuable proposition for our customers in India.”

The iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone with 3G networking that is twice as fast as the first generation iPhone, built-in GPS for expanded location based mobile services, and iPhone-2.0 software, including support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. The phone also runs hundreds of third party applications already built with the recently released iPhone SDK.

“We are thrilled to be working with Bharti Airtel, India’s leading integrated telecom company, to bring iPhone 3G to millions of mobile customers in India. We can’t wait to get this revolutionary product in the hands of even more people around the world,” said Apple’s COO Tim Cook.

Customers will be able to purchase iPhone 3G at Airtel Relationship Centers. Details of pricing and availability would be announced at a later date.
