Telkom has launched its first mobile offerings aimed at the business market and is taking the fight to its rivals with aggressive introductory offers on smartphones and tablets.
Telkom Business Mobile — the brand the company is using for its business-focused products — is offering tablets from Apple, Motorola and Research in Motion at aggressive prices on 24-month contracts.
The company is promising savings of about 20% compared to products offered by rival network operators.
For example, the company is offering Motorola’s Android-powered Xoom tablet for R340/month with 10GB of monthly data on Telkom’s own mobile network (plus 10GB for use late at night for R100/month more).
It’s also providing BlackBerry smartphones and PlayBook tablets on two contracts costing R410/month and R595/month, depending on the hardware taken.
It’s offering Apple’s iPad 2 tablet, too, though is offering a R6 000 rebate for use at iStore outlets as the US company does not allow the iPad to be sold on contract bundles. The offer allows consumers to buy any Apple product except the iPhone and includes 10GB of monthly data for R375/month on a 24-month contract. — Staff reporter, TechCentral
