Vodafone introduce ‘Nearly New’ – offering better deals for customers

Voda Logo

Vodafone has launched ‘Nearly New’, offering pre-owned smartphones at a discount for pay as you go (PAYG) and pay monthly (PAYM) customers. It makes it more affordable for customers to get their hands on a smartphone, helping to increase take-up of the mobile internet among the mass-market (rather than being aimed at early adopters or people who already have a smartphone). We’re particularly targeting pay as you go users who have yet to make the leap to a smartphone (smartphone take-up among new pay monthly customers is over 90% already).

Crucially, all pay as you go ‘Nearly New’ handsets come with a 12 month warranty and all pay monthly ‘Nearly New’ handsets have a 24 month warranty. It’s worth noting that currently the majority of pre-owned smartphones that are used in the UK have been bought from eBay.

For PAYG customers it means they can get a smartphone at a reduced up-front cost (saving up to £155) and for pay monthly customers it means they can get a smartphone on a cheaper monthly price plan.

Nearly New is available for PAYG across all our stores now and will be launched online next week. It’s available in selected stores for pay monthly customers and also online.

Is this Sony’s next Xperia flagship device?


With CES kicking off next week in the USA, Sony are expected to announce the Xperia Z at their press conference on Monday evening. The image to the right has been leaked and the device looks to quite a beauty. Believed to have a 5 inch display, a 13MP camera and running Android 4.1 it could be time for Sony to regain some market share from the likes of Samsung?

If the image is indeed correct I’m loving the fact that Sony have ditched hardware buttons on the front of the handset and everything is now on screen.

Roll on next week for confirmation.

A (belated) Happy New Year!

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy new year.

Regular visitors my have noticed the uncharacteristic lack of new items over the past week. Unfortunately both James and myself were really ill over the Christmas period so have been out of action.

However, normal service will shortly be resumed.

Lots of good things planned for this year too so watch this space!
