If you are reading the Nimbuzz blogs you will know that the World Mobile Congress 2010 is taking place in Barcelona. One of the exciting bits of news is that Vodafone, and so hopefully Vodacom soon too, announced the “world’s cheapest phone” which at todays exchange will sell for R115.
What will you get for this:
- 5 hours of battery
- 2 games
- a tourch
For an extra R40 you will get a Vodafone 250 with a larger colour screen and a FM radio.
But it doesn’t stop there as Nokia announced a R75 phone and we are waiting for the details. Anyway this is great news for the developing world and all of us that are cash strapped.
Although we do not yet know the details of the operating systems of these phones the WAP version of Nimbuzz will work on any browser of these cheapies save even more money with cheaper messaging (chat rather than SMS).
Anyway this is great news for the developing world and all of us that are cash strapped.
