$13 phone – dual SIM, FM radio, MP3 player, Bluetooth, microSD slot, flashlight…u need more?

13dollarphone

This dual band $13.04 mobile phone will work in just about every country in the world except the USA, and comes with a 1.8 inch color screen, FM radio, camera, MP3 and MP4 playback, Bluetooth and a flashlight. Amazingly it will also hold up to 32GB of data on a microSD card, which probably equates to gazillion photos at less than 2 megapixels.

What we find amazing is the fact that they can build something like this, sell them in single units and still make a profit. If this is the sort of product you can put together in this price band, how much profit are the other phone manufacturers making out of us every time we buy something a little – OK a lot – more sophisticated?

It wasn’t that long ago that they were selling plain old MP3 players at this kind of money, which is really sort of strange, don’t you think? Oh and yes, it’s got a ‘super big speaker‘.
