OK  so it probably struggles to open email and would fit right into a scene from Clueless, but this is a significant price for a Android phone – a measly £20!

It’s a perfect follow up from my post yesterday about how ad-funded mobiles are on the horizon. Operators will soon be giving handsets away for free with no contract, generating revenue from ads embedded into the device.

Take this T-Mobile handset for example, at just £20 they could give it away for free and make significantly more than that over the phones life time.

This really can’t be too far away now.
