Unveiled at the Mobile World Congress convention earlier this month, BlackBerry's affordable all-touch smartphone for 4G LTE networks, the BlackBerry Leap, is now available on pre-order via several online stores in the UK.
Prospective buyers can pre-order the SIM-free BlackBerry Leap model via Clove, Expansys and Unlocked Mobiles. Clove and Expansys have similarly priced the smartphone at around £215 ($320), while Unlock Mobiles is offering the device for £205.
Those who wish to order the device, will have to be patient as the smartphone will only be available in late April. Clove has revealed that stocks of the device will be available by end April, while Unlocked Mobiles has confirmed that the new BlackBerry smartphone will hit shelves on 29 April.
Vodafone UK has confirmed that it will stock BlackBerry Leap, but only for Business users. Among other network providers across the country, EE will also be selling the smartphone. However, both the carriers have not revealed the launch date and price details of the smartphone.
BlackBerry has requested users to pre-register for the smartphone on its site to get notified about the availability of the product. Meanwhile, you can check the following links to know more about pre-ordering the device.
