good fone for them who live in remote areas and also a cheap 1 in just 10 euros (Rs 610) thats great
What the hell is this? why would anyone buy such a phone? Maybe as a prank!
this is really a mindblowing mobile i have ever seen..and i am going to gift this mobile to my brother ali on his birthday
kodn, 14 Mar 2010come on, when a snatcher snatches your phone, do they ask you if u r rich or not?
as long as... moreThats the point - it should be more atractive. Becides :) my first was me40 siemens - and it looked much better, and had more functions. That was 5 years ago.
Whats the point buying new one like this once you can get old but better phone for same price.
this is really mind-blowing cell phone!. The design is truly world class and looks are second best to none.I am dropping NOKIA 6233 for this cell phone.
oh come on this thing is meant to be a budget phone and it only costs 11 euros so dont expect it to look like a motorola auora or arte. duh!
Smart strategy for Vodafone....10 Euro......cheapest phone ever..
The uglyest phone ever.I can't beleive that phones like this are on sale in the year 2010.

I still find it an very very ugly phone, i don't mind the B&W displays, that is fine with me, since those displays give you a huge amount of battery time and they are better to read in very sunny conditions (look at the Nokia 1280). Next to that, if you go to a country like africa (or some parts of azia) then you might bump into the problem that, how simple or how expansive your phone is, you just won't be able to get a connection since some parts of those countries don't have GSM/GPRS/UMTS system, because they are to remote from any big city. So, comming back on to my comment to this phone, the features are good, the performance is good, but the design just laks of inspiration :-D.
come on, when a snatcher snatches your phone, do they ask you if u r rich or not?
as long as they snatch a phone, it's all right, so people are practically buying phones which would hurt them less when it gets snatched or something.
imagine, you were walking down a deep dark ally holding your 8800 gold arte and it got snatched, perhaps you'd cry, but if this gets snatched from you, you can recover in just a week or so,
but they should have made this thing look more attractive,
Worst design for phone even as compared to the phone is used in 2000.
Even the gift would look like a piece of garbage when the someone hold in his/her hand.
One more thing though, i understand that this conecpt is for "poor" countries, but if you take a look at the so called "poor" countries then you see that the there is nothing wrong with the telecom market there, give the people good stuff, the can use and make that affordable (look at Alcatel and Sagem they get the idea).
I am sorry.... but c'mon, what an ungly mobile phone, i have to say, the specs are good, but I am sure with our current technology they could have a little bit more effort in to this, even Nokia can make better looing phones then this. I think, in this case, Vodafone should stay with just the 250, and through away this ugly 150... :-D
Shark, 18 Feb 2010Does this device have sms? Well it's for poor African countries which doesn't have mobile tec... moreDude, did you seriously have to add that it was targeted at poor African countries? Be more reasonable and focus on the phone itself, rather that where it's heading to. Cheers.
I think it's a great idea, some people can't afford the luxury of a more fancy phone and actually need it for calling instead of stupid fancy crap.
Rather odd that they are selling it in South Africa. We have 4 Mobile Operators; Vodafone, MTN, Cell C & Virgin, WITH 2G, 3G & 3.5G Networks in most urban areas. The market is massive, with more than 83% of South Africa's population currently using mobiles. That means 40 Million people use the mobile networks.
Even in this country phones have become diposable. This will add to the rubbish heap.
