Royal Wedding mobile phone: Chavtastic handset ahoy

If you're a staunch royalist, a collector of royal memorabilia, or just a chav (possibly all three), then you may be interested in the Royal Wedding edition Alcatel One Touch mobile phone that the Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy will be flogging in order to cash in on the future King and Queen's big day.

Sporting a Union Jack fascia, Will's and Kate's initials and the wedding date on the back, and Felix Mendelssohn’s "Wedding March" ring-tone - this really is the tackiest mobile phone that we've ever come across on Pocket-lint.

But, at less than £15, it may well be the kind of item that turns out to be worth a few hundred quid in a few years, so it could well be worth a punt on.

Mark Eastham, commercial director for The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy said: "We are delighted to offer this fun, limited edition, Royal Wedding themed phone to our customers.

"It’s great to offer a product which really taps into the national spirit over the coming months, and is still an affordable option for customers".

We're not sure it does exactly tap into the national spirit, but it would certainly be a talking point. And it's much cheaper than a Royal Wedding fridge.
