Paoli Dam, a Bengali actress who was recently in the news for flaunting herself in a skimpy bikini and hot, revealing costumes, was quite excited about getting the latest Apple device — the iPhone 4 — on Friday. The device was presented to her during the launch of the product in West Bengal by P D Sharma, chief executive officer of mobile services in Kolkata, West Bengal and Odisha at Bharti Airtel.
After getting the first iPhone 4 from Airtel, actress Paoli Dam said, “I am happy to possess one iPhone 4 from Friday. I have also been given a favourite number by Airtel, which I can memorise very easily. I am sure this handset will become a part of my accessory.”
When asked about the delay of almost one year in the product arriving in India after its June launch in the USA, Sharma said, “With third generation (3G) mobile networks only coming of age in recent times in India, there was no other option but to wait for the iPhone 4.”
Airtel and Aircel had launched the famed Apple iPhone 4 in India on Friday at Rs 34,500 and Rs 40,900, for the 16GB and 32GB versions, respectively.
iPhone 4 comes in a sleeker, sharper and slimmer design than its predecessor did. The fourth-generation model of Apple iPhone comes with a 3.5 inch screen with 640 X 960 pixel resolution known as Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, and FaceTime software for video calling.
The phone runs on iOS 4 as its operating system, which offers multitasking, spell check, folders, iBooks and a host of cool new features.
The phone has a 5 megapixel camera, as compared to 3 megapixel in the earlier version. The camera has an LED flash for illumination and the device also has a front VGA camera to support video calling.
For connectivity it has WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI and GPS. The device promises seven hours of 3G talk time, six hours of 3G browsing, 10 hours of WiFi browsing, 10 hours of video or 40 hours of music playback.
