iPad is finally here in India!

Apple is finally launching its much-awaited tablet iPad in India. The company has tied up with government-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited to launch the tablet in the country.

The Wi-Fi version of the iPad will be priced between Rs 26,000 and Rs 33,000,  while the 3G+Wi-Fi version will be priced between Rs 33,000 and Rs 44,000. Both versions will come in three capacities, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

India has never been the most important market for Apple so it has always delayed its India launch. It is finally launching in India when there are already rumours of the iPad 2 launch just few months away.

The big question is will iPad really woo Indian techies?  We don't think so. At a time when the market is flooded with tablets from Samsung, Dell and Notion Ink, iPad doesn't give the customers anything different. Little wonder that in India, iPhone hasn't been a best seller yet.  At best, the device might eat into Apple's iPod touch sales compared to other branded PC sales.

With its reputation preceding it, it has already evoked price-cuts from rivals - the Samsung Galaxy Tab, for instance, is now available at Rs 29,500, down from the launch price of Rs 36,499.

However, the android bug is rather big in India. So will have to wait and see if the iPad can outdo the Android .

    Taylor's appointment is effective Nov. 1, and on the same day Lafley will become executive chairman of the board, P&G said in a statement. P&G has been struggling with sluggish sales due to "choppy" growth in developed markets, tough competition and a strong dollar. To rejuvenate growth, P&G has been streamlining its business and earlier this month said it would sell more than 40 brands to perfume maker Coty Inc (COTY.N) for $12.5 billion to narrow its focus on fewer, faster-growing brands …

    Oil steadies after four-day loss; U.S. inventory draw eyed

    Oil prices steadied on Tuesday, with Brent recovering from near six-month lows and U.S. crude settling more than 1 percent higher as bets for a drop in U.S. stockpiles offset concern over a global oil supply glut and China's stock market meltdown. Trades also cited short-covering after a four-day selloff that wiped between 6 and 7 percent from crude futures prices. Some stayed convinced, however, that oil has more to lose, and that a bottom for crude futures was still far off. …

    The Dow Jones industrial average and S&P 500 chalked up gains of more than 1 percent, while the Nasdaq Composite lagged slightly. After the S&P sank over the past week towards the low end of a range it has traded in since February, some investors wagered the market was primed for a technical bounce-back. "The S&P has had five down days in a row and a lot of people are starting to nibble," said Michael Matousek, head trader at U.S. Global Investors Inc in San Antonio, which manages about $1 …

    Denials fly in war of nerves over Greek debt talks

    ATHENS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Conflicting statements and denials flew between Athens and Brussels on Tuesday in a war of nerves highlighting the depth of mutual mistrust over a new round of negotiations on an 86 billion euro bailout that started this week. Any hope of a fresh start in fraught relations between Greece's leftist government, purged of its most radical members, and the institutions representing its creditors, appeared to be dashed by the flurry of assertions and rebuttals. …
