  1. iStore opened in Bangalore first. Its been operational since nov 07. I visited the store. Its just like visiting any Apple store. They have only apple products on display.

    When I asked iStore employee about iPhone Launch – he said it would come to India in September.. Hoping they will launch 3G iPhone with better storage capacity. But can’t wait that long..

  2. Now we’re talking!!! They should do at least the same in China and everywhere else. The world is big, so should be Apple. Especially now that they up to dominate portable computing.
