Yeah, you're quite right but its sad to see that till now many major smartphones are not even released here let alone the pricing factor...

Ps- I'm from Delhi, the capital city of India...not from AP :-)

now, that's because the govt is charging them more money to sell those phones and nexuses aren't coming because most of the bollywood songs, movies etc are available for free, so people wouldn't buy them from the play store
.....so you are born and brought up in Delhi, yes, i know its india's capital city........mumbai is the financial capital and bangalore is india's silicon valley ......my friend is from AP, so i thought that you are from AP,as a state its doing pretty well.
i think that the pricing and availability of smartphones will be improved in india, apple have achieved a 400% increase in their marketshare, so they have started concentrating more on india, this is a great news for apple fans, this is also a good news for android fans because as soon as samsung came to know that apple's marketshare is increasing,they reduced the galaxy S3's price to a mere $499, which means that its cheaper in india than in USA.......and if the top two companies are concentrating more on india, then the others should follow them....
india is developing pretty quickly, the smartphone market is increasing rapidly.

$70 for a SIM is absurd, but then again who would be sane enough to travel there in the first place.

Does north Korea even have cell phone service? This could just be some North Korea Trick. They are just going to put some tin cams on a pole and label them 3G.
