    I thought the iphone wasn't selling in Japan:

    "Sales of the previous model in Japan reached about 700,000 units, according to Makio Inui, a Tokyo-based analyst at UBS AG. Credit Suisse Group AG’s Hitoshi Hayakawa estimates as many as 1 million iPhone 3Gs were sold in the country. Inui and Hayakawa expect sales of the new model in the next 12 months to fall short of those of its predecessor. "

    Softbank gave out 3G for free in Japan.

    Nevertheless, nearly 1 million 3G sold (or given away) in Japan in less than a year is quite incredible considering the fact that 3G was not designed to satisfy Japanese people's very particular tastes.

    So, you know you can get the iphone for free in other countries, what difference does it make, and they just started offering it for free in Japan.
