The much-awaited Apple’s iPhone will reach the Indian market soon. The mobile phone group Vodafone has scored its first deal to sell Apple’s iPhone in India apart from nine other countries. iPhone, a touch-screen mobile phone, combines Apple’s popular iPod music player, a video player, and Web browser.

Vodafone will begin selling the iPhone by this year end. Earlier, a leading business daily had quoted unnamed sources at Apple retail saying the iPhone is expected to launch in India in the first week of September 2008. The report had said that initially only the 8GB version would be launched for somewhere around Rs 28,000 with the 16GB version expected to follow suit later.

The other nine countries where Vodafone will sell iPhone are Australia, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Portugal, New Zealand, South Africa, and Turkey.
