As a brand that stakes its claim firmly at the high end of the smartphone market, Apple might not seem the most natural fit in a smartphone market like India's, where the average selling price of a smartphone sits below $200.

In the following video, tech and telecom specialist Andrew Tonner looks at Apple's recent push into India's smartphone market in greater detail.

And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and to see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!

    I agree, too many videos on MF these days. I can't be bothered to watch them. Takes much longer than skimming a web page to see if it's worth reading.
