APPLE’S IPHONE 3GS
SPECS: iOS 3, upgradable to iOS 6; 3.5- inch capacitive touch; 600MHz processor; 256MB RAM; 8GB internal memory, no expandable memory; 3.15MP camera; 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS,
Bluetooth. Since the launch of the legendary iPhone in India in 2008, none of the new models have been available for a price below 35,000. After the launch of the iPhone 4S
` last year, Apple decided not to stop the sale of the iPhone 3GS. It brought down the price tag to 20,000. However, just a couple of weeks ago, srvice provider Aircel
` introduced a special offer for its users—the 8GB variant of the iPhone 3GS for 9,999 only. There is a catch, however. The Aircel customers will also have to pay
` 3,000 a month for data usage.
` The iPhone 3GS is almost four years old but is still far better than many Android phones. Also, unlike other players who launch over 20 phones a year, Apple sticks to its one model a year strategy. Apple also offers full support as the iPhone 3GS will be upgradable to the latest operating system, when iOS 6 is launched. Moreover, the Apple App Store has the highest number of free and paid apps available today. Most of them will be compatible with the 3GS as well. Apple closely examines all the apps before they are uploaded to the App Store. This eliminates the chances of malware and virus attacking the phone.
