As well as falling back to low one-off prices for the BlackBerry PlayBook, Carphone Warehouse is also bundling the BlackBerry tablet free with BlackBerry phones; the BlackBerry Curve 9300 and the BlackBerry Curve 9360.
The 16GB PlayBook can be had free with the BlackBerry Curve 9300 from £26 a month and the BlackBerry Curve 9360 for £31 a month.
