O2 has just become the latest operator to bundle up laptops and mobile broadband together, joining the illustrious ranks of just really everyone else now.
They’ve gone with Samsung and why not, they’re just as good as anyone else and O2 have even chosen the choice models of the R510 and the NC10. The latter of which is more or a netbook, but who are we to be critical over mere product defining language.
O2 has loosely defined their threefold reasoning for this selection of ‘puters as being; Style, Substance and Staying Power. In reverse order, they believe both have specifications ideal for years to come, substance to produce great performance whilst being stylish all at the same time.
They went on to quote some common stats to back up this bold move for them. From a report entitled ‘Changing Face of the IT Market’ by Gfk, it predicts 9-10 million sales of laptops are expected this year. Although the report was dated September last year and way before the financial world really began to crumble.
Apparently, they’ve introduced three deals to accompany the announcement but no details were on offer as to what actually made up these new plans.
At the end of the month, this new venture for them will be available online and at 490 of their stores nationwide.
We’ll bring you more details on what’s what, when we find out more ourselves.
