If a Google Nexus S SIM-free from the Carphone Warehouse is a little out of your price range at £430, then you might want to check out this instead. Carphone Warehouse is now offering the Alcatel OT-209 for the princely sum of £0.01. Yes that’s right, a phone for a penny.

You’ll have to cough up £10 for a minimum top up though, so if this'll break the bank think carefully before handing over the readies.

Features of this ultra-ultra-budget phone include a colour screen the size of a postage stamp, an FM radio and and LED torch light (but no camera).

We’re just popping round the corner to our local Carphone Warehouse to investigate. Check back for some unboxing pics soon!
