Available exclusively at the Carphone Warehouse, the Samsung B130 Black is apparently Britain's cheapest pay-as-you-go mobile phone.

Aimed at the UK's credit-crunched consumers, and in time for Christmas, the GPRS handset is on sale now for £4.95.

With a compact design weighing in at 67 grams, the handset has a "large, practical" keypad, colour display, WAP browsing, MP3 ringtones, currency converter, calendar and voice recorder.

The Samsung B130 Black is available from £4.95 pay-as-you-go from Carphone Warehouse stores nationwide and online.
