Last week my colleague Eric Bellman and I conducted a live Facebook chat on Apple’s big gamble on India.
The video is embedded above and on The WSJ Facebook page here.
Eric and I discuss India’s promise as the second biggest smartphone market after China (hundreds of millions of people are getting online for the first time on low-cost smartphones), what Apple’s been doing to make strides here (assembling phones locally for the first time, working to open its own official stores, trying to boost the iOS ecosystem, etc.) and the challenges it faces (the biggest: price).
