So when will JioPhone open for pre-booking?

However, since the time JioPhone launched, Airtel and Vodafone has come out with their own 4G feature phone offerings making the market more competitive than ever before. Bhartiya Airtel launched a 4G feature phone in partnership with Karbonn at Rs 2,000 while Vodafone tied up with Micromax to bring out a Rs 999 offering.
