Carphone Warehouse won’t sell LG’s mini laptops
Carphone Warehouse is unlikely to sell LG’s ‘Netbook’ laptop when it arrives towards the end of October.
The retailer has made big commitments for its own-brand ‘Webbook’, made by Elonex. Although Carphone is enjoying strong sales of its Webbook, which is packaged free with fixed and mobile broadband contracts, it is believed to have considerable stock in its warehouse in Wednesbury, near Birmingham.
Carphone will sell the Netbook, but only in Ireland.
Phones 4u will stock the LG Netbook exclusively in pink and white at launch. It is believed that three networks, and Tesco and Argos will be selling the black version.
Carphone is expected to start selling LG’s mini laptops at the turn of the year.
