Cheap! Cheap!

We found a pound down the back of our sofa yesterday. What shall we do with it? Buy some bread? Ah, you can't really get a loaf of bread for a pound anymore. Chips? Same.

What about a new mobile phone?

Stop sniggering, dear reader, for the 99p mobile is here. Carphone Warehouse is selling the snappily-named Alcatel OT-209 for the price of, well, something from a 99p store.

Of course, free phones are the norm for people on contracts. But this is the cheapest a pay as you go phone has ever been sold.

Of course, the OT-209 isn't an a-powerful smartphone. It can text and call and that's about it. Still, better value than a couple of bags of crisps...
