Apple: “…and one day we will enter India,…”

Apple COO Tim Cook was quoted by Reuters at Apple’s annual shareholder meeting

We will enter Asia with the iPhone in 2008… we will one day enter China, we’re not saying when, and we will one day enter India

When _is_ that day? We are already nearing one year since the release of iPhone and there is not even a whisper in India. When you contact the local retailers of Apple hardware, all you get is 8-10 months more. *Sigh*. You disappoint me Mr Jobs.

India gets everything late, new line of laptops enter as late as 3-4 months (that’s a quarter :-P) and iPods a couple of months. Why this ill treatment? Aren’t there enough Mac faithful in any other country? I am trying to dig up some numbers for the number of Mac users in the country. Well, when we join together, with the typical clamor that Indians are known for, we will be a force to reckon with ;-D!

Anyhoo, here goes the open request for any Mac faithful / Apple faithful in India. If you own/rent/lease Apple hardware, put in a comment. We can decide how we can get the iPhone in India.

MacBook Air!

And while the skeptics wondered, if Apple would indeed name one product in their notebook lines – Air, Apple has decided to call their latest “thinnovation” – MacBook Air. Check it out!! Yet another gadget to drool over!Like an uber geek, I followed Stevenote till the end ;-)! And well, sadly there was no “one more thing” this year.. And what happened to the Leopard update? I just see an iTunes update (supporting movie rentals now and a related iMovie and Front Row update) *sigh*!When’s my cat getting its bath?
