外文标题：iPhone 5S available for Rs 1 lakh in grey market
NEW DELHI: Apple has not launched the iPhone 5S or 5C in India. But you can still buy one. The catch: You have to shell out big bucks for these devices. To be precise, the asking rate for the basic model of the iPhone 5S is between Rs 65,000 and Rs 1,00,000, depending on who you ask, and in which city.
苹果并未在印度发布iPhone 5S和5C。但是，你仍然可以买到。需要注意的是：你必须花大钱买。准确的说，iPhone 5S基本版要价介于6.5万卢比和10万卢比之间，这取决于你向谁买和你在哪个城市。
The iPhone 5C is difficult to find as dealers in these grey markets say that there is no demand for it, but it can be bought on websites like eBay for around Rs 55,000. The devices are factory-unlocked, which means you don't get official warranty. The unlocked version of the 16GB iPhone 5S costs $649 (around Rs 40,000) in the US, while the iPhone 5C costs $549 (around Rs 34,000).
黑市上很难找到iPhone 5C，黑市商人说市场并无此需求，不过可以花大约5.5万卢比在eBay等网站上买到。买来的机子是解锁的，也就是说你享受不到原厂保修。16G版本的iPhone 5S解锁版在美国要价649美元（大约4万卢比），而iPhone 5C价格是549美元（大约3.4万卢比）。
