Softbank have today announced new price plans for the iPhone 3G.
iPhone for Everybody is due to come into effect on the 1st March 2009, meaning that you can now pick up an 8GB iPhone for 0 (yep, zero) yen, or a 16GB model for just 480 yen per month.
As is always the case, you’ll need to sign up for a 2-year Softbank contract – but there’s good news here too as they have simultaneously announced a reduction in the cost of their monthly unlimited data plan, down from 5,585 to 4,410 yen. You can also sign up for a cheaper pay-per-packet type data plan, but with a new series of American Idol having recently started you’ll be bound to blow the upper limit in any case.
If you don’t already have an iPhone, now is definitely the time to get one. If you do already have one, now is definitely the time to get one for your wife.
