The Docomo Android phone (ht-03a) was announced today and will be
available late June or early July. No word yet on the price.

I'm torn. On one hand I'm interested in an Android phone, but on the
other hand the Softbank iPhone offer seems pretty good. What is Docomo
charging for hardware and data plans for other smartphones, such as
ht-01a or ht-02a? Can someone guesstimate how the ht-03a will compare
with the iPhone?
