Kyocera Kona – dual screens, 2 mp camera and phone calls for $6 (yes really!)

How much did you pay for your first mobile phone? More or less than $200? More? Yep, us too. Well let’s face it, cell phone technology is pretty miraculous isn’t it? Beaming sound and vision and stuff from person to person anywhere in the world using a global network of antennas? Still science fiction peeps.

Which is why it’s more than incredible that we’re now so awash with the technology that the price for a standard cell phone, like this Kyocera Kona, has plummeted to the price of a Starbucks Chai Tea Frappechino with bits.

The thing comes with dual screens, including 2.4 inch and 1.44 inch color, a talk time of 6 hours and a standby time of several centuries. We’re betting the 2 megapixel camera takes reasonable shots too. $6.99? Unreal.

        Many thanks, Nigel.
        My sister will be in the states in May/June and might have wanted one but I’ll warn her no to.

        Regards,
        Philip.
