As Q4 began we reported that Apple would soon be slugging it out in the trenches with Samsung and other smartphone rivals as Apple's lead in India, Maneesh Dhir, and telecom business chief, Sanjay Kaul, would be rapidly increasing the pace of growth in India via a new Shop-in-Shop retail strategy. Today we learn that Apple is going to put the screws to Samsung and others by aggressively pricing the iPhone 4S.
A New Times of India report today states that the iPhone 4S dropped from US$623 to US$509. While quantities last, the iPhone 4 base unit with 8GB will sell for US$339.
Apple's new iPhone 5S and 5C will be launched in India on November 1, just two days before the festival of Diwali.
