      It is yet to be launched in India. The India distributor sadly is a bit irresponsible in attending queries, and doesn’t take calls half of the times. But he told me once that I should contact him after 31st October.

        Dear Satnam
         
        I am likely to get my phone on 10th of October. If u want it before that, u can buy it from ebay ,negri electronics or amazon
         
        I am waiting because I don’t have any real understanding of which one to go for, D910A or D910i
         
        Until that is cleared , I am not going ahead with the purchase. Also, I wish to know what colors are available apart from the standard black.
         
        U can write to me at atul292@gmail.com if u have any more questions.

        • SatnamDhiman

          @atul292
          the model D910i was matching the indian telecoms frequency, so i think D910i better to buy and according to my knowledge the mobile only in black and white color.
          can you tell me launching date of this mobile in india. or any showroom or shop near the chandigarh reason by which i can see physically.
