Apple iPhone 5 coming to India on November 2, App Store adopts rupee pricing

“Even as Apple iPhone 5 launch in India has been delayed by a week to November 2, the company on Friday started billing in Indian rupee on the App Store,” The Economic Times reports.

“The billing so far was being done in US dollars,” The Economic Times reports. “Having a rupee pricing will definitely result in a big convenience for both buyers and sellers as there would be no dollar billing, making the purchase transactions easier and transparent. ”

The Economic Times reports, “The stock is expected to start arriving at the master distributors Redington India and Ingram Micro within next two to three days, sources said. The two are expected to start booking pre-orders within a day or two. ”

    1. Well, at the rate people are adopting all of these grubby little foreign kids and bringing them into the U.S. I imagine that nationality will soon be imported too. Why can’t they just go to the pound and save a dog?

  1. Expanding into more and more countries does Apple no good if they cannot get the supply line fixed. They sell out each and every day. Apple could sell many, many more if they were just plain AVAILABLE!

    Wonder why Apple’s stock price is depressed? Just look at the current supply chain fiasco and wonder no more!

    1. And yet they have the most efficient supply chain in tech. Believe me, they are working to ramp up production.

      While a problem, this is a good problem to have. Much better than sitting on stock, or having Best Buy request that you do a buy back of the inventory they’ve been warehousing for three quarters.

      1. Yes, Apple has the most efficient supply chain ONCE THE DEVICES ARE COMPLETE AND IN THE BOX READY TO SHIP. Getting the devices built and into that box is the problem.

  2. An yes, a person being in debt, living paycheck to paycheck but not really getting by is better than that person stealing a million dollars, getting caught and being thrown in jail for 20 years.

    Apple hasn’t had the situation you’ve described since 1996 or 1997. To suggest that Apple would ever go back to that situation or even bring it up is just ignoring the real problem. Don’t stick your head in the sand by saying it’s better than the worst exact opposite.

    Apple MUST fix their supply chain problem. This is supposedly Tim Cook’s forte. He needs to get it fixed and fixed FAST. At first glance it seems just as bad for the iPad mini. This is getting WAY out of hand. Cook needs to get this resolved NOW.

  3. How about instead of producing iPhone 5s for a backwater third world dump, you finish dealing with your back order problem in your primary market: AMERICA. Or is that too politically incorrect for Apple?
