The 8GB model is set to cost somewhere between US$380 and US$470, and will launch with “complete fanfare” – according to the press release.
It even says that it was a “better, cheaper alternative” for the iPhone customers in India; but hey, why get an iPod and a Phone together, when you can get an Windows Mobile smartphone in a iPhone-like theme. Full press release is after the jump.
