    Arey,Slll’s M.R.P is Rs.43180!!! B’coz 1$=Rs.56!!! Don’t blame Samsung for this!!! We can get it for around Rs.37,000-38,000 in some other store like Mobile Store n that too with warranty!!! A friend of mine bought HTC One X for Rs.36,000 even though its M.R.P was Rs.42,000 at that time!!!

    The prices may go down by monday to 40,000/- this was told to me by a friend who works in samsung india..he is in marketing dept..!


      (May 31, 2012 - 5:18 pm)

      Thought its 40k, its overpriced ๐Ÿ™


    (May 31, 2012 - 4:30 pm)

    Samsung should rethink about the price. Why would they want to go the I-Phone way regarding pricing?? Huge mistake. I personally know a few people who where waiting for this but have backed-off because of the price.


      (May 31, 2012 - 7:55 pm)

      its not samsung mistake,its because of value of rupee dropping down(1$=55 around)


    (May 31, 2012 - 4:27 pm)

    (May 31, 2012 - 3:20 pm)

    go for htc one x. It have same sprcification and available at 32500 at shops


      (May 31, 2012 - 11:45 pm)

      I would hold off on the HTC X one the battery frankly sucks and you would wanna see super AMOLED in contrast with the SC-LCD of the X one,Believe me you’ll see why S III is the better bet.


    (May 31, 2012 - 3:14 pm)

    samsung gone mad or people who are buying


      (June 2, 2012 - 10:25 am)

      I agree your thought. Samsung will take an action for it.
