Vodafone announces iPhone 3G pricing for Australia

Handset to launch 11 July

Vodafone Australia today announced their range of plans for the iPhone 3G, which will be launched on 11 July.

The plans were published on July 9, but were then removed from Vodafone's Web site less than 20 minutes later. The plans unveiled today are largely the same, with the option of paying the handset off monthly the only change from the original plans.

"The iPhone 3G is designed for customers who want to download mobile music and entertainment, as well as enjoy mobile email, so we've created caps that realistically cater for that type of data usage", said Russell Hewitt, CEO of Vodafone Australia. "Vodafone is being straight-up with customers by telling them exactly what's included within our iPhone 3G caps and how much it costs."

The cheapest Vodafone iPhone plan is $69 per month, with an additional monthly cost of $12.88 for the 16GB iPhone 3G, as well as an up-front cost of $309. This plan includes $310 worth of calls and text, but only 250MB of data.

Optus and Telstra have already announced their iPhone packages.

Vodafone will begin inviting pre-registered customers to sign on to a 24-month contract and purchase an iPhone 3G from a reserved allocation of stock. "Pre-registration demand for the iPhone 3G has been incredible", said Hewitt.

Full pricing details including up-front costs and monthly handset repayments are available at http://www.vodafone.com.au/iphone.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
