UK financial giant Barclays has unveiled a new service called Bespokeoffers which appears to be essentially its own version of Groupon, a tad odd considering the bank's core business. You don't need to be a Barclays customer to make the most out of it though. Amongst the offers currently available is one which is likely to attract many of the bank's corporate customers.
There's a BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, a device launched by the Canadian company formerly known as RIM, which is on sale on O2 via Carphone Warehouse's subsidiary Mobiles.co.uk, for £27 a month with an upfront fee of £20. That's a total cost of £668 (or an effective monthly fee of just under £28). It also represents a saving of £30 off what you'd pay direct.
The plan includes unlimited minutes and texts as well as 1GB data. You can bag the phone on PAYG from Three for a mere £450. The phone comes with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip, 2GB onboard storage, BlackBerry 10 (which is now upgradable to 10.1, an update that brings Skype to the table) and much more.
