News’ stirring again, while Apple’s a year old device is coming in India. Airtel, Aircel and Flipcart shows a coming soon registration page, Aircel sends PR for the launch.
Many announcements and rumors have come so far for iPhone 4 launch – and all failed. This time it’s 100% confirmed. These two carriers are already busy promoting iPhone 4 on their websites, meanwhile Aircel comes out with a launch date – 27th May. Mark that, it’s day after tomorrow and if Apple’s really launching iPhone 4 media will get the invitation today or tomorrow. Again, it can also be a silent release from Apple India, all left for the carriers to create the hype.
