I love my iPhone (&Airtel)

This is getting more exciting. iPhone and Airtel work great in India. I am right now sitting in 2004 Lucknow Shatabdi express and accessing the internet on my iPhone using Airtel’s seamless GPRS network.

There is one thing that I love about the Airtel’s network in India – coverage. You just go anywhere (except J&K) and you find Airtel there. Also, it offers all its value added services like EDGE etc. everywhere.

I am using meebo to chat with my friends and using the Google reader’s customized iPhone interface to catch up on my subscribed feeds.

More upon reaching the city of nawabs…

Its kinda cool

This wphone plugin (http://www.wphoneplugin.org) is kinda cool. I have an iphone type interface for the wordpress admin console from where I can do almost anything (including posting).

This is the first of the many blogs that I am gonna write from here :).

It does have bugs though. Although I am hopeful that they will be fixed in the next release.

Stay tuned…

After a long time…

I am posting this after a long time.

Some of the things that have been keeping me busy were:

1/ The all new look n feel of http://ocw.mit.edu
2/ Yet to be launched HFH
3/ My short US trip – http://www.setugarg.com/simpleviewer/castleIsland
4/ My new iPhone :)

Those of you who have been following the breaking news in the gadget world, would know that iPhone has been soft unlocked and is working fine with the majority of carriers in countries around the world. Well atleast its working for sure with T-mobile in the US and Airtel and Vodafone in India as per my little experiment :).

I believe in “Vidya Dadati Vinayam” and hence would soon be sharing the details of my little experiment here. Those getting impatient and geeky can go to http://iphone.unlock.no for the time being. You should get everything you need there.

I would like to thank the folks at iPhone Dev Community for making this possible and engadget.com for bringing this into my notice.

I think all this was destined to happen :). My trip got extended just for the right amount of time (well ofcourse there was a business reason attached with the same :D). Engadget released the confirmation that the hack works in India 1 day before my return flight and to top it all, Apple opened a new store with lots of 4GB iPhones in stock in Natick near my home in Shrewsbury.

Stay tuned… More to come soon.

P.S – I am writing this from my iPhone :). So please do not mind the spelling mistakes.
