Apple iPhone 3GS 8GB Available Rs 19,990

With the recent launch of the iPhone 4 for a hefty sum, the mid-ranged consumer market was a bit disheartened. This was especially due to the fact that most droids at the price range of Rs 15,000 provide better than average specs and hardware. Now it seems like Apple wants to get into the mid-ranged market segment. The company has now made available, the 8 GB variant of the iPhone 3GS, pricing it at a not-so-hefty Rs 19,990. When you consider the specs of the device, you might just back up a bit, but the cheapest iOS handset deserves a look at the least.

For Rs 19,990 (which according to us is still a tad overpriced) you could get the Google Nexus S dubbed as the Royal Droid, but it is a matter of personal preference. The device comes unlocked, so you have the freedom to use it with any SIM card you want to.

The iPhone 3GS comes with a 3.5″ capacitive display with pixel dimensions of 320×480, a 3.15 MP camera, a 600 MHz processor, and 8 GB of internal storage without an expandable memory card slot. In terms of connectivity, the handset is capable of reaching speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps on 3G HSDPA. It runs on iOS 4.3 out of the box, with support for iOS 5 when it is launched in a couple of months from now.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to what you want in a handset. If you want a device which can multitask and do a lot more, you wouldn’t consider the 3GS. But if you are looking at a decent battery life and a whole set of features such as access to apps from Apple’s App Store, which only Apple can offer, this is the cheapest deal for you. Nevertheless, considering the fact that the 3GS is a 2 year old device (originally launched in 2009) you shouldn’t be surprised with the specs. The device is available in select stores across the country.
