Windows Mobile phones built by Samsung have always impressed me, so I love the fact that the Samsung i600 is now available for £99.95 from expansys.com. It’s unlocked so you can use it on any network. The phone runs Windows Mobile 5.0 and only has a 1.3 megapixel camera, but you do get 3G, WiFi and video calling.
The i600 is a classic Smartphone, so there’s no touch screen. It does have a thumb-wheel and QWERTY keyboard though, plus you can pay with PayPal if you’ve got some eBay profits knocking around.
Be quick if you’re interested – last time we mentioned a cheap phone on expansys.com it ran out of stock within hours!
Update – You may be able to upgrade to Windows Mobile 6 using this link. Although it does advise against upgrade on Orange branded handsets like this, I reckon this is purely a warning because it’ll remove the Orange tweaks and network settings.
