Book Your Apple iPhone In India

I've been waiting for Apple to distribute iPhone in India. Now, Vodafone started to accept pre-registration for Apple iPhones in India. I've just sent them text message to book my iPhone. Both Vodafone and Airtel are in the race to sale iPhone. This is a new version of its iPhone, with support for faster 3G wireless networks and faster phone in 8GiB and 16GiB models.

You can be the first to own the *offical* iPhone 3G in India, with Vodafone. And like the
original iPhone, it combines three products in one-a revolutionary phone, a widescreen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device with rich HTML email and full web browsing. iPhone 3G. It redefines what a mobile phone can do-again. To book your phone visit vodafone website or send text / SMS "IPHONE" to 56789.

Update: Airtel user can pre-order the same via web-interface here.
