Bell has recently announced that they’re acquiring the retail giant The Source. Bell will be using the store to help grow Bell’s wireless, digital TV, Internet and home phone services. The Source plans to carry the full array of Bell consumer services at its more than 750 stores across Canada, including Bell Mobility, Solo Mobile and potentially Virgin Mobile wireless products and services.
The Source is known for offering low prices due to its box store and no frills mentality. Does this mean we can expect to see lower handset prices? I’m hoping that with zero commission sales people, large volumes and increased demand, we can expect to see prices fall.
[UPDATE: I obviously confused The Source with Circuit City. Still, expect to see way more of Bell soon.]
I don’t know if this is in hope of invigorating slow holiday sales due to a stagnant economy, or if certain BlackBerrys aren’t selling so well, but the important part is that they’re cheap.
The Source by Circuit City currently has a Friends & Family promotion, which offers the BlackBerry Pearl 8220 and BlackBerry Curve 8310 for $0 with a 3-year contract and minimum $35 plan. In addition the BlackBerry Bold is being sold for $99 on a 3-year contract with a $45 minimum plan. Remember, this is the device that was being sold for $399 a few short months ago.
Nothing much else to say here, other than that it doesn’t pay to be an early adopter. Get ‘em while they’re cheap!
So you’re interested in purchasing the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 – maybe for yourself or as a Christmas present for a loved one. But in this current economic climate, money is tight, and you’re not quite willing to purchase the Pearl Flip from T-Mobile for $150 on a 2 year contract, or from Rogers for (possibly) $150 on a 3 year contract. The BBCool crew has compiled a quick guide of other venues to purchase the Pearl Flip 8220 at a reduced price.
- Wal-Mart: America’s favorite all-in-one shop is offering the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 in both red and black for $99 on a 2 year contract after rebate, with free shipping.
