As announced earlier Google phone is all set to hit the Indian markets this December!

Google Phone

Ajay Sharma, country manager, HTC (India), told Business Standard: “We would prefer a mobile operator tie-up to introduce the Google phone in India in December.”

HTC’s G1 (the Google phone model) will cost more since “the Indian market does not work on the handset subsidy model".

“We expect to build volumes in India and the Android-based phone should make HTC a bigger player in the wireless handset market.”

“We will decide the business model soon,” he further said.

The amazing thing is that it is labelled as a major competition to Apple's iPhone! There are chances that HTC would retail the phone at a price higher than the US price in the Indian markets.

There are speculations that it will be a network locked phone. But one interesting point to note is that HTC already has an exclusive partnership with Airtel!
