Softbank: Free 3G iPad

Softbank is offering the 3G 16GB iPad for free, that is, of course, with a new two-year contract. Engadget:

You see, there’s no built-in monthly surcharge for this one; rather than paying off your iPad over 24 months, you’re actually getting it for nothing as long as you’re kosher with forking out Â¥4,725 ($56) per month for that 3G goodness.

Softbank’s promoting deal as “iPad for everybody” and starts on December 3rd.
