O2 is offering cheaper iPhone 4S prices in UK for SMBs, allowing them to enjoy the latest smartphone from Apple for office applications at a better deal than consumers.
O2 is offering small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) the chance to get hold of an iPhone 4S on a “lease.”
The deals see the iPhone 4S handed over to SMBs with no upfront cost for one year. All firms need to do is contact O2 to ask for a lease, pay £45 a month and they’ll get the phone, insurance as well as 500MB of data for 12 months.
Consumers can get hold of an iPhone 4S 16GB for £47, with 500MB of data, but they will be locked in for 24 months and will not get the extras SMBs do. For the same iPhone 4S price, UK SMBs will enjoy additional bonuses including unlimited O2 to O2 minutes and unlimited calls to 10 UK landlines and as many texts as required.
At the end of the lease, SMBs will be asked to hand the phone back to O2. This is a win-win situation as SMBs in UK get to just the latest iPhone 4S for a year and change to the presumably future iPhone 5 model once the one year lease contract is up.
“We know that small businesses are used to leasing items from cars to photocopiers and office space,” said Ben Dowd, director for O2 Business in the UK.
“They understand how it works and what the advantages of leasing are. We have simply taken this idea and applied it to the smartphone market.”
Telecoms companies are flocking to SMBs in search for more revenue. Right back at the start of the year, Orange unveiled its Pocket Landline offering for SMBs, which was designed to ensure companies never missed calls wherever they were.
