Asda peddles phones for £12.50

Budget blower bonanza

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Supermarket mogul Asda is selling budget blowers for the PAYG market, with shoppers able to pick up handsets from as low as £12.50.

Up for offer is the T-Mobile Zest 2, which features a 0.3Mp (VGA) camera, MP3 player, radio, Bluetooth and a battery life of five hours.

For the same price, there's the Nokia 1616.

Alternatively for £15, shoppers can pocket the Samsung E2121.

None of these handsets are likely to impress much, but with the company's 'Everyday' bundle - 100 minutes and 100 texts for a fiver - they could be a wise choice for parents looking to get their kids a first handset. ®
