Aircel's official website went inaccessible today when the Apple iPhone 4S pre-order had been scheduled to begin.
The service provider had announced it would launch the phone in India on November 25 and that the phone would be available for pre-order from midnight of November 18 onward.
In an earlier update on its official Facebook page, the company had said, "Aircel brings iPhone 4S to India...launch details coming soon".
The announcement was followed by a similar update by Airtel on its Facebook page which said, "Airtel will be launching iPhone 4S soon. Watch this space for more."
Apple had launched its newest member of iPhone smartphone family in October.
The 4S, which hit the US market on October 14, comes with the same design, shape and size as the iPhone 4, but boasts of certain additional features that made it an instant hit among users who have been able to lay their hands on it.
The iPhone 4S comes with the A5 chipset, which also powers the iconic iPad 2. Besides, the dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU and PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU is a potent combination.
The phone has both GSM and CDMA connectivity. Also, one of the major points of attraction of this latest upgrade from Apple is the camera quality. The iphone 4S comes with an impressive 8 megapixel camera. The video recording facility in the phone has also been upgraded from 720p to 1080p.
However, the single biggest 'iPopping' feature of the 4S is Siri, the feature that responds to voice commands and allows you to 'send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls and much more'. Apple's 'humble personal assistant', Siri receives and understands commands made in simple, everyday language, which means users do not have to learn commands designed specifically for the phone to understand you.
