BlackBerry launch receives retailer boost

10 December 2008 — 7:00 PM

The launch of a new smartphone from Research In Motion (RIM) has been backed by one of the UK's biggest retailers.

Following news that the BlackBerry Curve 8900 would be available in the New Year on the O2 network, the Carphonewarehouse has also announced that it will stock the model.

The retailer added the Curve 8900, which is to be made available across the UK from December 20th, will come with a "striking" titanium-coloured finish.

Ross Yealland, head of new propositions at the Carphonewarehouse, said the latest phones from RIM are likely to be popular with the public.

"The new BlackBerry Curve 8900 is destined to become a stylish must have phone. We predict both new and existing customers will be fighting to get their hands on one from launch," he added.

RIM's BlackBerry Curve 8900 features Wi-Fi, GPS, a built-in media player and a 3.2-megapixel camera - which could tempt many into recycling used mobile phones in order to upgrade.
