NEW DELHI: As Apple lovers started pre-ordering their 4-inch iPhone SE or 9.7-inch iPad Pro devices from Thursday (the device will start shipping to them from March 31), experts here are disappointed as India - touted as an emerging market for the smallest and "cheapest" iPhone SE - will only start to see the first device by April 8. 

Billed as a trendsetter for the smartphone market in India, at $399 (US pricing), the device will be available in India for Rs 39,000 (retail price) which is within premium segment in India for smartphones so the question of its being the cheapest iPhone ever does not hold any truth.
