11/03/2011, WDS, a wireless services company specialized in tech support, has concluded that the proliferation of cheap ($100, no contract) android phones may cost wireless carriers $1.99B worldwide. WDS says that this is much higher than more expensive handsets that can be worth $500-$700 (no contract). Do you find that surprising? I don’t. There’s no way a $100 phone can be as good as one that costs 6x more, and in the […]
10/17/2011, Some may not appreciate China’s efforts at putting out pirated products or imitation devices, but for the most part these devices tend to lean towards the cheaper side, allowing those on a budget to experience the technology that the rest of us are enjoying, and the Cutepad Z7 is not different.
10/06/2011, A couple of days ago we reported that Best Buy had dropped the price of the HTC Flyer down to $300. It’s unsure as to why Best Buy made that decision, although many are thinking that it’s probably due to how cheap the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet is, and that it seems price is a huge factor on how well a tablet does.
06/01/2011, If you’re off to the seaside for vacation or just a day trip, you might not want to bring your shiny new SLR in case it gets wet, damaged, or covered in sand. But if you really want to take some photographs, and having fun in the water as well, you have the choice of either investing in a pricey waterproof camera – or you can obtain a budget-lover’s delight […]
04/12/2011, If you’re unwilling to fork out a fortune to spend on tablets, you’re not alone. While most companies are trying to get at least one tablet in every home, Elonex has a different idea and wants everybody in one household to have a tablet each. To do this, they have decided to create tablets that sell for half the retail price of their competitors. Called the eTouch and eTouch Blade, […]
03/09/2011, The folks over at Shanzhai have recently reported about one of the coolest looking Android phones to date. Called the H2000 Android, this iPhone 4 lookalike could probably confuse you for an iPhone 4 from the front if you don’t look closely, but the back design is where it truly shines. Instead of having an Apple logo with the words “iPhone” at the bottom, we get the cute funky Android […]
02/10/2011, According to the latest report from Bloomberg, Apple might be expanding their iPhone lineup to include the entry-level market. These rumors (at least until proven as true) from an unknown source they have stated that Apple will be creating smaller, cheaper and more universal iPhones that will be priced at $200 – without a contract. Talk about budget-priced! A $200 iPhone will be in the market to compete against budget […]
01/17/2011, Looks like some lucky folks might be getting themselves a PlayStation 3 for the ridiculous price of $39.99. Needless to say, the internet caught wind of this promotion and thousands of orders must have been made. About 8 hours later, the posting was removed from the internet, bringing up an Error 404 page instead. It is uncertain whether this was a mistake or some sort of super promotion, as Target […]
07/23/2010, India might have one of the cheapest cars in the world, and they’re going to break new ground with a new tablet device which will certainly make those who are on an extremely tight budget happy. After all, you can’t argue with a $35 price point, although the fact that it is made out of paper might just freak some of you out. There are no detailed specifications as at […]
07/20/2010, Getting computers into developing countries may not always be an easy task, as the cost is often a prohibitive factor. Now the folks behind the Humane Reader might have something on their hands, as it’s a small device that is capable of storing data that’s equivalent to about 5,000 books. Instead of bringing a device around with an integrated LCD display, the Humane Reader still needs the user to plug […]
06/14/2010, Details are still quite scarce on this device, but the interesting thing to many folks would be that it’s an Android-powered tablet priced around $88, which does make it quite an attractive device. Technical specifications (from what we know) are nothing to shout about, so this tablet’s claim to fame would most likely be its low price point. It sports a 5-inch touchscreen display, Rockchip 600MHz ARM9 processor, microSD slot, […]
11/20/2009, Did the moon just turn blue? Guess so, especially when you can pick up the Meizu M8 for a mere €199. What was once touted to be the iPhone killer (but failed miserably in case you haven’t noticed) is going for $295 unlocked (after conversion from Euros), making it $100 cheaper. Just in case you’ve forgotten what the M8 can do, it boasts a wide range of video file format […]
