Vodafone is sending jitters across the mobile industry, with the announcement of its two new mobile phone handsets- Vodafone 150 and Vodafone 250.
Online PR News – 18-February-2010 – – Now, one may wonder as why these two handsets are so special. Well, the surprise element comes in the prices of these two handsets. Vodafone 150 will be available in the market for a price of less than $15, while Vodafone 250 will cost somewhere around $20.
Vodafone network (http://www.bestcontractmobilephonedeals.co.uk/vodafone_nt.asp) has plans to sell these mobile handsets in India, Turkey and eight African countries including Lesotho, Ghana and Kenya. Vodafone 150 qualifies as a basic mobile handset and is being seen as an initiative by the company to expand communication services in developing nations. The other mobile handset, Vodafone 250 has the same features, however it has a colour screen and FM radio.
As per the estimates, somewhere around 11 million customers are using banking services on Vodafone network with mobile phones. And this figure is making the service provider to come up with cheap mobile phones for developing nations and to expand its communication network. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) also shares the same opinion, when it says that more and more people are now accessing banking and mobile health services.
No-doubts that the whole scenario of global mobile industry is changing. Be it mobile service providers such as Orange, Vodafone and T-Mobile network (http://www.bestcontractmobilephonedeals.co.uk/t-mobile_nt.asp) or mobile phone making companies like Nokia and Samsung, each player is making efforts to catch the market and users' attention. The UK mobile market, in particular, is in a big phase of transition. However, all the eyes are now set on the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where every mobile company is coming out with their star products.
