Data Select has signed a distribution deal with gaming accessories company SteelSeries.
From November, the distributor will supply products in SteelSeries' Freedom to Play range, including its Wireless Mobile Controller, priced £69.99, and Flux Headset, which is priced £79.99.
Gillian Tune, regional marketing director for EMEA, said: 'We chose to partner with Data Select, because of their incredible reputation and their specialised distribution of mobile accessories. Data Select will be our first mobile-focused distribution partner in this region, and for us that illustrates the emerging demand for mobile gaming peripherals in the UK market.'
Roy Taylor, managing director of Data Select, said: 'We’ve recognised over the past year, with the growth of the smartphone market and the emerging tablet market that there is a growing demand for accessories that support gaming on these mobile devices. When we caught wind of SteelSeries’ newest Freedom to Play mobile gaming product line-up, it was a no-brainer to partner up with a team that is recognised for delivering premium-quality peripherals to consumers.'
