Well, here we are folks: the free iPad is her, but only in Japan. Local carrier Softbank has just announced an appealing offer for Apple’s tablet, in the 16GB WiFi + 3G version, with a 2 year data agreement. However, for this unique chance, you must pay around $56 per month, over a time 24 month period.

You can find the free iPad in stores from December 3rd and we expect the number of sold units to explode in Japan, after the holidays start.
