Android Smartphone that costs just 26
 
With a touchscreen display, internet connection, front and rear camera lens and dual phone number function, a new handset costing just 26 is set to take the mobile market by storm.

Launched last month the Indian-made Karbonn A50S hopes to rival market leaders – Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy – at a fraction of the cost.
And while the low cost smartphone is officially only available to domestic customers in India, bargain hungry Britons can buy the handset online and have it sent on to the UK. The mobile can be used on most UK networks with a pay-as-you-go Sim card.

Britons wishing to buy a Karbonn A50S must first register with an Indian courier firm that provides a local postal address or ask a friend or relative in India to let them use their address. The smartphone can then be bought online and delivered to the address in India and forwarded to the UK.

Sending a 2kg package – the approximate weight of the Karbonn handset - to the UK costs about 20 and because the phone is so cheap there is no import duty to pay.

No chance for us in Turkey, it would either go missing in transit or ten times it's value demanded as import duty.

It's a bit heavy at 2 kilos though, isn't it?

At 2kg I guess it comes with one of those red boxes around it, might be worth a punt though at that price

I'd love one but no contacts in India.

The review I read about this phone also said it had slots for 2 SIM cards to receive calls on 2 separate numbers. Amazing if true.

oops, just noticed Bickern mentioned the dual number function. Could I put a UK and a Turkish SIM in there without the deputy Turkish PM accusing me of swapping recipes between two countries???

Perhaps my SIMs could just talk to each other and leave me out of it.
