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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
