For hardware keyboard lovers like myself, you may be interested to hear that UK carrier Vodafone has reduced the monthly price of the BlackBerry Q10 by a few quid as part of its post Christmas sale. If your contract is up for renewal and the Q10 is appealing then you may well want to hit up their site as you can now pick up the BlackBerry 10 handset from just £29.00 (including VAT) per month - down from £33.00, although other plans are avaaialable if more data is required.
Normally we see that with the cheapest offerings you don't get a great deal for your money. Things are different here with Vodafone as the 24 month contract is bursting with good stuff. For your monthly fee (and with no upfront cost for the device) you get the following:
- Unlimited minutes
- Unlimited SMS
- 1 GB of data
Business users get 2GB of data thrown in for some reason for the same price which kind of sucks for us consumers. Vodafone of course do also have 4G plans too, but coverage is very limited currently and they are quite a bit more expensive.
Reasonable value if you ask me in comparison with the other main UK networks selling the Q10. That is until Three roll out 4G at no extra cost!
Let's just hope Vodafone put some marketing behind BlackBerry and don't leave us in the dark while Android and the iPhones take the limelight.
