Online retailer Saholic has listed it at an asking price of INR 52, 428. This is a huge cost for any mobile phone ever but the worst part is that the official price of the phone is Rs. 60,300. The deliveries of this phone will start from September 11 and the phone will be delivered within 3-5 days of booking and after the above date.

People have great expectations from HTC as it makes quality and beautiful handsets but the mammoth price is surely a huge concern for the Indians. The people at HTC must gone crazy to have set outrageous price for the Butterfly S.
