While Selfridges in the UK had a BlackBerry Q10 exclusive for the black model at launch, they weren’t the first to offer up the white version.
However they did sell out their stock in just 90 minutes on opening weekend. Good news today though as Selfridges has now made the white Q10 available via their in-store Carphone Warehouse. The device will be available SIM-free for £579.95 for carriers such as O2, Orange, EE, T-Mobile, Three and Vodafone.
Selfridges has taken in plenty of stock given the demand of the black Q10, so there should be plenty on hand to satisfy the demand.
LONDON, 10th May, 2013 – The best-selling BlackBerry® Q10 smartphone is now available in white at Selfridges and Carphone Warehouse stores.*
Selfridges sold record numbers of the BlackBerry Q10 via its in-store Carphone Warehouse concession ahead of the device going on general release on 30 April. Carphone Warehouse is predicting a similar level of interest for the BlackBerry Q10 in white and has ordered extra stock to meet expected demand.
Graham Stapleton, Chief Operating Officer at Carphone Warehouse says: “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!”
The highly sought-after new smartphone will be available on O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Three, EE, Vodafone and TalkMobile, free from £33 per month* and £579.95 SIM-free http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/mobiles/mobile-phones/BLACKBERRY_Q10?colourCode=WHITE.
*The BlackBerry Q10 in white will be available from Selfridges and participating Carphone Warehouse stores in the United Kingdom from Friday, 10th May 2013, subject to availability.
