Tesco could soon be rivalling the likes of Carphone Warehouse with its ever increasing portfolio of mobile phones. OK, that might be a slight exaggeration, but after it began selling the iPhone, it has now announced impressive sales for a far cheaper handset. The VX1i Party Phone is an exclusive to Tesco and is available for the staggeringly cheap cost of just £18.99.
The phone is SIM-free and works with all UK networks apart from 3, making it a good bet for customers who are simply visiting the UK for a short period, or who need a temporary phone while their high-end phone is being replaced.
Tesco claims to have sold over 10,000 VX1i Party Phones in the last two weeks of 2009. Perhaps this is explained by the number of festive partys and subsequent phone's lost during the same period.
