Why Apple left India

Since I heard that Apple had curtailed plans to build an Indian operation, I've been wondering why and BusinessWeek claims to have found some answers. In short, it was a cost thing, India's getting too expensive and turnover's too high. I wonder if we'll see this as a larger trend. I tend to believe this is an exception limited to Apple and the fact that their focus was strictly technical support.

I dont buy this arugment. You don't figure out that costs are too high just a month after setting up operations. I am sure Apple must have spent a very long studying the ecnonomics of outsourcing before they decided to setup operations in India. I feel there is more to this story!
