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.

No matter. The one-minute ad spot is terrific, worth every won Samsung paid for it.
It appeared on YouTube last week MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 18, 2013 11:44 AM ET

FORTUNE -- Born as an indie magazine, Vice Media has morphed into an irreverent digital media powerhouse, in large part, through the force of personality of its iconoclastic CEO-cum-on-air-personality, Shane Smith.
