Carphone Warehouse places biggest ever BlackBerry order on cut-price Curve 8520
Carphone Warehouse has placed its biggest ever order for any BlackBerry phone with the imminent Curve 8520, Mobile understands.
The pay as you go device is due to hit Carphone’s shelves on Monday
(17 August) and is expected to sell in high volumes due to its low £130 price tag.
Carphone has a three week exclusive on the violet colour variant, while the device will also be available in black.
One Carphone staffer told Mobile: ‘We’re going to be giving it a big push and we’re expecting strong sales from it. It could sell like the LG Cookie, as it’s a phone with a price tag that’s surprisingly low.’
The BlackBerry Curve 8520 offers a full QWERTY keypad, Wi-Fi, two-megapixel camera and memory expandable up to 16GB.
