Softbank announced that they will be offering a mobile TV add-on for Japanese iPhone users

The 80 gram device is a separate unit with tuner and aerial that retransmits the signal over Wi-fi to the phone. The iPhone (and can we assume iPod touch here?) connects via a special iPhone app that’ll be distributed free when the device hits stores in mid December for a suggested low low price of around $100.

That’s not all! If you buy today, you’ll recieve a special (built-in) iPhone charger at no additional cost.  Operators are standing by.
