Alcatel Releases UK's Cheapest Cameraphone At GBP14.99

French Phone Manufacturer Alcatel has released what is possibly the cheapest UK camera phone currently on the market; the OT-S520 costs only GBP 14.99 and will only be available in Woolworths on Virgin Mobile.

The phone will have a VGA camera and can be used as a webcam - which means that it almost certainly have a mini-USB port.

The candybar device also features a nice little 1.8-inch colour screen capable of displaying 128x160 pixels as well as providing up to 10 hours talk time.

At 11mm thick and sporting a nice glossy black finish, it ain't a half-backed product although it does lack a flash and a memory card reader.

Other features include MP3 ringtone support, 2MB of internal memory, a few games and a capacious 800-number directory plus support for Picture messaging.

The S520 costs less than half the price of the BIC Phone and should give you more talk-time with a £20 Virgin voucher.
