Japanese iPhone 3G Price Set

 SoftBank Mobile Corp. has announced they will be selling the iPhone 3G in Japan for $215 8GB and $320 16GB. iPhone customers will recieve a discounted price on mobile internet, $56 instead of the regular, $91 for unlimited internet access on other smartphones.   Customers will have to sign a two-year contract with the carrier in order to qualify for the subsidized prices. The iPhone is expected to face an uphill battle winning over the hearts of Japanese mobile customers. The country is saturated with mobile devices and many of those devices have features beyond that of the iPhone, including the ability to watch live TV. The iPhone will go on sale in Japan on July 11.
