Softbank announces iPhone 3G rate plans
The iPhone 3G will be available in Japan on 11 July 2008 at 12 noon, but unlike in the United States, it will not be sold at the Apple Store Japan. Instead iPhone 3G will be sold by local carrier SoftBank Mobile Corp. (SMB) who has issued a press release with information on its 3G rate plans. The flagship SoftBank Shop at Omotesando will have their iPhone 3G launch early, beginning at 7:00am. One fan, shi3z, has posted a live UStream video of the store (which is offline at the moment).

Update: iPhone in Japan is covering the local iPhone 3G news.
