Particularly since Whatsapp is a part of FaceBook, and the main reason that the Internet's popularity has exploded in India is FaceBook, YouTube and Twitter, if FaceBook tells Airtel that it will block Airtel IPs from not just Whatsapp but FaceBook servers as well, that will bring Airtel to its knees. The last thing they want to do is lose their #1 or #2 spot to a Reliance or Tata or anyone else just for this reason.

In India, the top 2 OSs are Android and WP8. While iOS is popular, not all the apps in the US store are available in the Indian store (and yes, they are different). So getting iPhones/iPads is even less value for money than it is here. It's overwhelmingly a Samsung Galaxy out there, with Karbonn and Micromax following. Lumias - particularly the 520s - are popular with a section of the female population, and make WP8 next to Android in the list. Blackberry is there as well at the top - in India, brands don't lose their luster as quickly as they do in the US.
