Carphone cuts prices on tablets
Carphone Warehouse has cut the prices of tablets including the Apple iPad, Google Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab as it anticipates a surge in sales in the run-up to Christmas.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has been reduced by 25% to £149, while the Apple iPad 3 16GB Wi-Fi model's price has been cut by 10% to £359. The Google Nexus 7 32GB is now on sale for £189, compared to £199.99 previously.
Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at Carphone Warehouse, said the retailer's partnership with Best Buy gave it greater buying power. He said: 'We are determined to offer the best price for customers on the high street this Christmas. With a raft of new models just landing on shelves from the likes of Apple, Google and Amazon, tablets are sure to be top of many customers’ wish lists.'
