Carphone bags BlackBerry white Q10 exclusive
Carphone Warehouse has snatched the exclusive on the BlackBerry Q10 smartphone in white.
The device has gone on sale at its Selfridges concessions and Carphone Warehouse branches, priced £579.95 Sim-free and from £33 per month. Carphone Warehouse said it had ordered additional supplies of the handset to meet demand, after it sold out within hours of going on sale at Selfridges on 30 April. The handset is the first of the next generation BB10 devices to feature the traditional BlackBerry Qwerty keyboard.
Graham Stapleton, chief operating officer, said: 'The Q10 has been hugely popular since we launched it less than a month ago and we’re expecting that the device will become even more desirable to customers now that a white version is available. BlackBerry has done an admirable job with this new handset, the design is a fantastic mix of traditional – with its QWERTY keyboard – and new – using the BlackBerry 10 operating system and touchscreen. In the eyes of our customers, it seems that BlackBerry’s certainly still got it!'
