Today, O2 has announced new 24 month iPhone 3G tariffs for the UK, thus confirming those rumors which appeared last week.
Starting April 3, O2 UK’s customers will be able to get an 8GB iPhone 3G for free if they choose a new 2-yr contract agreement with a data plan of at least £34.26 per month.
The 16GB iPhone 3G will (obviously) also be offered for free, if you’re willing to pay £44.05 per month for two years.
Sadly, the 18 month iPhone 3G tariffs will not be changed by O2.
Almost certainly, the cheaper tariffs are being introduced because Apple is getting ready to launch a new iPhone this year. Of course, iPhone OS 3.0 kind of makes the old handset a new one, but let’s hope there will be some fresh hardware coming from Cupertino in addition to the fresh software.
We might even see more than just one new Apple smartphone – perhaps that iPhone Nano will finally be announced, together with a handset that can be a worthy successor to the iPhone 3G.
