Vodafone Brings The Lowest Cost Handset In The World To Qatar Vodafone150 Available Now
25 April, 2010: Using its global power, Vodafone has brought the exclusive Vodafone 150 (VF150) to Qatar; the lowest cost mobile phone in the world.
For the first time in Qatar, a mobile phone can be purchased for only QR 59 with a full 24 month replacement warranty.
"With the launch of the VF 150, we are giving many people in Qatar the opportunity to share in the benefits of mobile technology for the first time," Said Daniel Horan, Director-Commercial Business Unit.
"The cost of mobile handsets can be one of the most significant barriers for people in accessing and benefiting from the growing number of socially valuable mobile services. The lives of people who use the VF 150 will be changed and improved as they become part of the mobile society. This is one more milestone in Vodafone's journey towards making a world of difference for all the people in Qatar," continued Daniel Horan.
The VF 150 offers excellent voice and SMS
services, as well as support for mobile payment services. Some of the other Vodafone 150 features which are not
really expected to be in low cost mobile phones include: Mini USB connector,
alarm clock, torch, calculator, currency converter, 2 embedded games and memory
for up to100 entries in phonebook plus SMS storage.
The VF 15O is available now at all Vodafone outlets and can be purchased on its own for just QR 59 or customers can take advantage of the value deal that includes the VF 150 phone plus a welcome pack (valued at QR 25) for only QR 75.
