Vodafone has announced its local pricing for the iPhone 3G.
The 8GB iPhone will be available for on-account customers with a 1GB monthly data cap for NZ$199 on a two-year contract. The 16GB phone costs $349 on the same plan. The cost per month of the plan is $250.
On the lowest data plan, 250MB per month, the up-front cost of the 8GB iPhone is $549, while the 16GB costs $699. The cost per month of the plan is $80.
An intermediate plan, 500MB per month, will see the 8GB model available for $449 and the 16GB model at $599. The cost per month of the plan is $130.
Vodafone's local website appears to have succumbed to traffic and has been down for around an hour. International media is covering the local iPhone action intensely as we are the first to see the launch of the new 3G model of the iPhone.
The phone is officially launched here at 12.01 Friday morning.
