It’s been a busy weekend with terrible weather and the dread of the Christmas Queues, but maybe you don’t even need to leave the comfort of home to purchase your Christmas gifts. A selection of Pay as you Go handsets joined the Xmas line-up here at Mobilesplease over the weekend, and range from the budget gift (£1) to the dream gift for someone special (£180).
Let’s start with a treat for those on a budget, the Alcatel OT-300, available on a variety of networks with Virgin sneaking in under the rest with a pricing of just £1. There’s not a great deal of spec here but this basic phone does have a VGA camera and SMS/MMS messaging.
Next up is the LG A140 and at £19.99 on T-Mobile this is a great price for a good-looking handset. Taking simplicity to the extreme the A140 again supports SMS/MMS messaging but the camera offers a little bit more with a digital zoom and video record function.
Entering in the mid-range we see the LG GU230 available for £39.99 again on T-Mobile. The fashionable slider design is probably worth the extra money and the feature set is enriched with a 1.3-megapixel camera with video record function, GPRS/EDGE browsing and a music/video player.
Finally, the Samsung Chat rises to the top with both a comprehensive set of features and a price tag of £180 with Vodafone. The Ch@t features a QWERTY keyboard making it excellent for creating SMS, MMS, email and instant messages along with posting wall updates and Tweets to your favourite Social Networking site. The Ch@t also boasts a 2-megapixel camera, MP3 player, FM radio, Bluetooth, GPRS & Wi-Fi browsing and quad-band reception for those who love to travel overseas.
There’s definitely something for everyone here, so follow the links and allow the Internet to do your shopping for you this Christmas!
