Smartphone Deals that you may consider

Econet has a “contract” system where you buy a smartphone over a period of 24 months

Well I like the fact that they reduced the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

These devices from the Econet website will set you off $60 per month for the next two solid years. Well, just at the ZITF 2013 the devices were still at $80 per month.

However, before yiou scream “expensive” yu have to consider that the bulk of the money you are repaying is going to your “airtime”

For $60 here is what you get:

  • $39 going to airtime
  • $26 going to gadget repayment
  • It means you will have payed a whooping $624 for the phone

For $60 a month you get:

  • $32 dollars going to airtime
  • $33 dollars going to handset repayment
  • It means you will have paid $792 for the handset

Are these deals good? Yes and No! Why?

Because these are not for the reach of the common man on the street. We need more pro-poor deals that are easy on our pockets and allow us to enjoy the beuaty of top-notch smartphones.

You can head over here to see more deals, like the Samsung Galaxy S4 which is amazingly not on the page but it will set you back a hefty $80 per month
