Although, I checked with their official India website the status is still under “coming soon”. But various other prominent Indian tech blogs and websites have already stared posting the price of the gadget. They are quoting a price range from Rs 49,000 to Rs 64,000 for VGN-P13G and VGN-P15G respectively. I wish they are not calculating it with the price at which it is available in U.S.A which is USD 899.00.
I am looking forward to buy one of the above mentioned cool and trendy looking lifestyle pocket PC for my personal use let’s see how it pans out. I would like our visitors to share more stuff about this pocket PC so that it can act as a value addition while buying this product.
