Video: The day Delhi went nuts for the iPhone 5S and 5C

Who says Apple priced itself out of the Indian smartphone market?

FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in India three weeks ago -- a month and a half after their initial release in 11 other countries.

Early reports suggested that the new iPhones were off to a strong start, but it wasn't until I read The Indian Express' follow-up Monday that I thought to see if there were any videos of the launch on YouTube.

If you are one of those who believed nobody on the subcontinent would shell out 50,000 rupees ($800) for the iPhone 5S or 40,000 rupees ($640) for the iPhone 5C, Gadgets To Use's attached video is not to be missed.
