+ - Aus iPhone pricing - yikes!->

Submitted by

Director of Acronyms writes "Pricing for the iPhone in Australia has been released by Optus and Telstra. The plans surprisingly aren't wildly over the top for the Australian market — the cheapest Optus plan is $19 a month with $50 worth of calls and texts and 100MB of data. The most expensive is $179 a month for $1500 credit and 1GB of data.

The killer though is the price of the phone — that $19 plan is only the plan, you pay an extra $51 a month on a one year contract to get the 8 gig iPhone. On the $179 plan they'll graciously throw in the bottom end model for free. If you want to use pre-paid, you pay for the phone up front — the 8GB and 16GB models will cost $729 and $849, respectively.

So much for Jobs' assertion that the 8Gig iPhone would cost the local equivalent of US$199...."
