BlackBerry launches trade-up site

Fancy upgrading? RIM's launched a new trade-in website for BlackBerry owners

RIM's been having a pretty torrid time of it recently, so it's not surprising that it wants to hang on to loyal BlackBerry customers.

With that in mind, RIM's launched a new online trade-in site that lets BlackBerry owners net up to £106 for their old blowers, as long as they upgrade to one of the listed devices.

The trade-up devices include the BlackBerry Curve 9360, Curve 9380, Torch 9860, Torch 9810, Bold 9790 and Bold 9900.

To take advantage of the scheme you'll need to send in your old BlackBerry, order a new model and enter a voucher code on the website in order to get your cheque.

Will it be enough to keep you hanging on to your BlackBerry until the long-awaited BlackBerry 10 OS arrives later this year? Let us know what you think on Twitter.
