Consumers to sell old mobiles so they can purchase a BlackBerry with O2?
6 August 2010 — 3:58 PM
O2 has announced it will now be selling BlackBerry phones on a Pay & Go tariff, something that may prompt people to sell their old mobile.
A BlackBerry has multi-tasking software and will allow mobile users to keep up to date with their friends and family via email or text message.
Jonathan Earle, head of consumer marketing for Telefonica O2 UK, said the fact BlackBerry's are now available on Pay & Go deals means more customers will be able to access the handsets.
"With BlackBerry Messenger being used more and more across the world, now anyone can share their PIN and get chatting," he added.
There are five mobiles in the offer, including the BlackBerry Curve 8520, BlackBerry Bold 9700 and the BlackBerry Pearl, which is the smallest device in the range.
Earlier this week, rival network provider Vodafone noted the BlackBerry Torch - Research In Motion's latest offering - will be available on its network.
The handset features a qwerty keyboard and a touchscreen.
