T-Mobile starts selling bundled laptops


T-Mobile is become the latest network operator to follow independent multiples Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U into bundling ‘free’ laptops with its mobile broadband packages.

The offer, currently exclusive via the T-Mobile website, includes a free Acer TravelMate 5320 laptop worth £349.99 for customers signing up for a 24 month unlimited data tariff for £30 per month.

Customers, will also have free access to more than 1,000 T-Mobile Wi-Fi Hot Spots based around the UK. 

T-Mobile head of retail service and development Jon Talbot told Mobile News last month: "We are looking at laptops very closely."We have been working closely with the Carphone Warehouse who already bundle laptops with T-Mobile dongles, and it has been a success."

T-Mobile joins Carphone, Phones 4U and 3 in selling bundled laptops. Orange is also scheduled to sell laptops in its retail stores later this month and Vodafone is expected to do the same shortly, following its deal to supply SIM-embedded Lenovo laptops to indirect IT channels.
