Indian carrier gets faster iPhone
India's Bharti Airtel on Friday said it would start selling the iPhone 3GS through its stores. The agreement with Apple doesn't have a set launch date and will be ready only in the "coming months." The carrier had already been selling the iPhone 3G as of August 2008 but until now didn't have access to the faster phone released late last year.
The provider isn't exclusive to India and has been accompanied by Vodafone since 2008, though it too has had to use the iPhone 3G for roughly the past 1.5 years. No deal has been struck for the iPhone 3GS at Vodafone so far.
