Asda launches £5 mobile
For your money, you get a T-Mobile Pay-As-You-Go1 Alcatel 1010 handset, which isn't pretty and has little in the way of features... but it is cheap.
The features it does have are, well, it's light and it has 3MB of memory and an inbuilt MP3 player and wireless FM radio. The offer comes without a minimum top-up charge so shoppers can buy as much or as little credit as they choose.
Why would you want one? Well, Asda reckon that it'll be a hit with those looking to buy a spare phone or, failing that, old people.
Claire McAuley, Mobile phone buyer at Asda says: "With purse strings stretched ahead of the festive season and a quarter of mums budgeting more than ever, our customers are always looking for new ways to save money. We’ve launched the UK’s lowest priced phone as a solution to keeping in touch at the lowest cost possible this Christmas and are expecting shoppers of all ages to snap them off the shelves."
