FNB has announced smartphone and tablet PC deals for their Gold and Platinum Cheque account holders that offer clients zero interest financing options on the Apple iPad 2, HTC Sensation, BlackBerry Curve 8520, HTC Flyer, and HTC Wildfire S.

Devices will be preloaded with the FNB banking application and the costs will be included in the customer’s monthly banking fees, FNB said in a press statement.

There aren’t straight-forward financing options available for Apple’s iPad 2, even through mobile network operators, making FNB’s offer somewhat unique.

FNB said that the smartphone and tablet PC offer is available to new and existing Gold and Platinum Cheque Account customers, and added that FNB Private Clients and RMB Private Bank clients will soon have access to it.

If you want to take up this offer FNB said that you need to SMS “phone” or “tablet” to 32812, noting that standard network rates apply.

FNB provided the following details on the discounts and financing options available for each device.
