T-Mobile cutting iPhone prices?


By

Although T-Mobile Germany's very own iPhone plan page doesn't yet show any change, fscklog (German, Google translation) reports that the company is offering reduced pricing for the 8GB iPhone.

99 up front, 29 per month
-- "Free" visual voicemail, 50 minutes voice time, 500MB data, 0.19 per SMS
-- 0.49 / 100MB additional data,

As you can see from the above table, the more money spend upfront on the handset, the cheaper / more inclusive the plans are (and vice versa).

Perhaps the most-interesting tidbit in their report is that these new special deals end on June 30.

Editor's note: Assuming T-Mobile will actually offer these plans, can we reasonably infer that new iPhones will arrive on July 1 or closely thereafter? Also, does this rejigging indicate that the Apple's freshman handset isn't selling as well as hoped?

Perhaps correct on both counts...

What's your take?
