After announcing Japan's iPhone 3G in one of the shortest press releases ever, Softbank is following up with a little more information in the way of pricing.

According to a Reuters report, the 8GB iPhone 3G will cost 23,040 yen ($213), while the higher-capacity 16GB model will retail for 34,560 yen ($319). Subscribers will need to sign a two-year contract when the handset, distributed exclusively by Softbank, launches in Japan on July 11. They can also opt for a plan that will allow them to talk for free among Softbank subscribers for most of the day with unlimited data usage at 7,280 yen ($67) per month.

The iPhone 3G will also be available in Australia (Optus and Vodafone), Hong Kong (Hutchinson Telecom), and New Zealand (Vodafone) on July 11, while Macau, the Philippines and Singapore will get the handset later this year.
