Carphone Warehouse targets tablets
Carphone Warehouse is the first retailer to announce pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The retailer is offering the first Android tablet to go on sale in the UK market at a Sim free price of £529 or on its own MVNO, Talk Mobile for £499.99 on a 30 day rolling contract. Talk Mobile is offering 1GB of data for £10 a month.
Carphone Warehouse will be putting together more options for customers looking to buy a Galaxy Tab which will include accessories and other tariff options.
A Carphone Warehouse spokesman said: ‘We don’t believe anyone else will have the breadth and depth of ownership options for this device making CPW the retail destination for tablets and Talk Mobile the natural choice for connectivity.’
Talk Mobile, Carphone Warehouse’s MVNO runs on the Vodafone network. Earlier this year the retailer migrated customers from Fresh Mobile, another Carphone Warehouse MVNO, to Talk Mobile.
Talk Mobile first launched with a range of low to mid range handsets, but is looking to offer more high end products in the future.
