The ZTE Kis is a budget phone currently on Virgin Mobile and ready for Christmas they are announcing a festive version. In White of course.
The new white Kis specs include a 3.5 inch touch screen, an 800MHz processor, a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and a 2GB micro SD card.
Virgin Media is now offering both colours for just £49.99* plus 12 months free data** worth up to £60. Although there isn’t anywhere on their site yet. Hopefully tomorrow the Virgin site will update.
It’s a pretty basic phone at a budget price, but if you want an emergency phone to keep in your bag then this would be ideal.
Here is the press release from ZTE:
