EE's first budget 4G phone spotted

It looks like EE has found another way of tempting you to sign a 4G contract. By selling you a super-cheap 4G phone.

The phone above has broken cover, although little is known about it right now. It's obviously an Android smartphone and according to Engadget, which caught sight of the phone, it is a phone capable of Cat 4 mobile speeds, so good with EE's double speed service, which is available for £3 per month extra in certain areas (see its website to find out if it is any use to you).

Apart from that, all we have is the EE skin on the Android operating system and talk of it being the lowest priced handset on the EE roster. That honour currently goes to the Alcatel One Touch Idol S, which is yours for £130 on PAYG or £19 per month on a contract. Engadget adds this phone should undercut the Alcatel model, as well as offer a better overall specification.

EE isn't commenting, perhaps because the phone is still a few months off an official release. Only when those months pass will we find out how competitive that will be. Although a big part of that will also depend on EE's pricing for its 4G network over the summer, which will still be the dominant part of any 4G deal at the bottom of the range.
