iPhone 5 Coming To India Around Diwali?

As per unconfirmed sources, Apple, is keen this time to launch its new iPhone 5 in India as early as possible. It appears that Apple has started taking India market seriously and also mulling to open few exclusive stores if it gets necessary approvals from Indian Government.
The reason for bringing iPhone 5 to India is that festival season is starting in India few days from now and this would be ideal time for Apple to introduce their iPhone 5 during this time to get advantage of holidays buying. Moreover, many corporates would select this newly launched device for gifting purposes during Diwali.

Apple iPhone 5

Keeping in view of upcoming launch of iPhone 5 in few weeks from now, Apple India has slashed the prices of its iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 models. The iPhone 4S 16 GB model isnow available for Rs 41,400, a reduction of Rs 3,100 from its earlier price of Rs 44,500.The company has also slashed the price of the iPhone 4 (8 GB) by Rs 9,600. The phone, which was earlier available for Rs 37,900 is now available for Rs 28,300.
Another good news for Apple enthusiasts is that Rupee is trading today at five month high of approx Rs. 52/- against US Dollars and this will be crucial element to fix the price of iPhone 5. As per our estimate, the price of iPhone speculated earlier by many blogs and tech writers will be reduced by approx.  Rs.1500 to Rs. 2500, if INR continues to get gain against US Dollar. In other words, the starting price of iPhone 5 should be around Rs. 43,000 as per today’s rate of exchange.
India is a very price sensitive market and of late Samsung has priced its new smartphones be it Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II below Rs. 40,000. Apple can’t afford to keep its prices too high as they will have to face tough competition from Samsung’s Galaxy range in India, which is very popular here. Moreover, Nokia’s flagship Lumia 920 is also round the corner and expected to be launched in India in November. This colorful device on Windows 8 platform will also pose serious problems to iPhone 5. Besides, other Android leaders like HTC, LG and Sony have recently announced their new smartphones in India, which are getting rave reviews. Apple will have to factor in all these developments before arriving at convincing prices.

Heaven is for Real

My Review for Heaven is for Real Deluxe EditionA Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

By Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent 
Published by Thomas Nelson

Title: Heaven is for Real A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back Delux Edition

Author: By Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent
Publisher: Thomas Nelson 
ISBN: 978-0-8499-4836-7
Genre: Religion/ Christian life / Inspirational / Non Fiction
Source: booksneeze
Rating: 5/5

I had seen this book all over the place. It had been in the news and all over the media. When I saw that it was available for review as one of the choices for Thomas Nelson Book Publishers blogging for books program Booksneeze I knew that it would be the next title that I was going to review. I got a complimentary copy of Heaven is for real by Todd Burpo from BookSneeze.I am very glad that booksneeze has given me an opportunity to write of this New York time’s No.1 best seller book. 


I began reading Heaven is for Real, I could not put it down until I finished it. I loved reading this book. I have read both the books. This book is about a little boy Colton who had a burst appendix and on the verge of death, he visited Heaven. He was supposedly there for 3 minutes, but time as we all know in Heaven is very different from that on earth. Upon waking up from his operation and for years later, Colton frequently surprised his parents with statements concerning Heaven. Colton’s story begs to be told and is written by Colton’s father.


I enjoyed the book very much, it was a sweet story of a kid who got to witness a glimpse of what heaven is really like, and I think even that’s extraordinary in itself. I have first completed the children version. This is definitely a good read, for someone who may have lost faith. A must read book.
