Asda peddles phones for £12.50

Budget blower bonanza

The essential guide to IT transformation

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. ®
