PC manufacturer Gateway has joined forces with BT Cellnet to offer customers a combined mobile internet package.
Gateway said the deal makes it the first PC manufacturer to offer a combined desktop and mobile email solution.
Customers who buy Gateway's Performance 550 Wap PC (Intel 550Mhz Pentium III processor) or the PC maker's Select 1000 PC (Athlon AMD 1000Mhz processor) will get a free internet-enabled Nokia 7110 mobile phone, providing they take out a contract with BT Cellnet.
Customers who purchase any other Gateway PC can buy the Nokia 7110 mobile phone for £105.
Mike Swalwell, senior vice president at Gateway, said: "The convergence of PC and mobile technology is one of today's most exciting developments. Providing our customers with one complete package to make mobile internet, and all it offers, easily available to them, is a natural step for us."
Gateway has also formed an alliance with BT Retail to roll out sales units in 85 BT stores during the next twelve months. The company said the deal is part of a strategy to extend its retail model from 18 wholly owned stores to other retailer's outlets.
Mike Maloney, vice president of Gateway's consumer division, said: "We are extending our retail reach in the UK market and finding the right retail location is difficult. This partnership will help us to penetrate the market quickly in high-street locations."
Maloney said Gateway will introduce own branded kiosks into six BT stores in the south east of England by the end of May. The second phase will roll out in to the remaining stores by the end of autumn. Customers orders will be taken through the sale unit to the Gateway's intranet.
