Price I paid for an off-contract Android-based HTC Desire: £389.99.
Consumer electronics arguably unnecessary with a smartphone in your pocket:
- GPS receiver: approx £100
- Wireless VoIP phone: approx £60
- Archos multimedia tablet: approx £150
- Kindle: approx £100
- iPod: approx £100
- Netbook: approx £300
- Nintendo DS: approx £110
Therefore, my phone was free.
(I realise that my logic and accounting is utterly wrong in the previous statement)
