FNB sells an iPad every minute

First Rand limited is the largest vendor of Apple iPhones and iPads in the country according to company CEO Sizwe Nxasana.

Nxasana made the revelation in an interview with Moneyweb’s Alec Hogg, where the two discussed First Rand’s success in the current market.

Nxasana noted that FNB was seeing great sales success with the iPad tablet device. “We’re selling one iPad a minute,” he said.

This impressive sales figure has seen FNB make a name for itself in the smartphone sales space. “We’ve become the biggest vendor of iPads and iPhones and smartphones generally,” Nxsana went on.

In addition to the sales figures, Nxasana said that the smartphone and tablet sales continue to drive volumes of new customers signing up to FNB to take advantage of the deal.

Another interesting bit of information revealed by Nxasana is that FirstRand deals directly with Apple, rather than going through local Apple distributor Core to source stock of iPad tablets. “We’re importing directly from Apple and we deliver them directly to customers,” concluded Nxasana.

The FNB smartphone and tablet specials are available to Gold and Platinum FNB account holders, as well as Private banking clients. Devices from a range of manufacturer’s including Apple, Samsung, HTC and BlackBerry are available for a set monthly amount over a 24-month period.
