Got this through my letterbox today. The price quoted ($979 for 24mth, Smart80 plan) is more than $650 higher than the $319 price on the Vodafone web site now for the same plan ($199 for Smart 130)...and more then $450 more than I paid for mine ($519) on the same Smart80 plan back in July. 

Meanwhile, the Apple iPhone gets the whole back page and is "free" (for $130 / month for 2 years). 

Did an Android-fearing iPhone lover mess up the ad copy? :-)'s a huge error and will put a lot of people off the only telco-offered Android phone on the market in NZ.
