Apple iPhone for free in Japan from Softbank?
One would think to offer the Apple iPhone 3G as a free mobile handset something must be drastically wrong with sales, but apparently that’s what is happening in Japan with Softbank.
CrunchGear reports that Softbank is attempting to push sales of the Apple iPhone 3G and intend on offering the 8GB version for free with a two year contract while on the same two year contract you can have the 16GB Apple iPhone 3G for just $100.
This offer by Softbank will run as of today until the end of March and furthermore, data plans for the Apple iPhone 3G are being discounted to roughly $45.00 rather than the usual $60.00 per month.
