TalkTalk Mobile has reduced the contract cost of several Huawei smartphones by 75 per cent.

From today (July 18) the Huawei Ascend Y210 is available from £1.25 on contract with no upfront cost for the first six months, £5 thereafter. TalkTalk’s ‘Small Plan’ includes 100 minutes, 250 texts and 100MB of data.

The entry-level smartphone was released in March and runs the Android operating system. It has a 3.5-inch touchscreen, two megapixel camera and 256MB of internal memory that can be expanded by a further 32GB with a microSD card..

The Huawei Ascend G510, which has a 4.5 inch screen and 1.2GHz dual core processor, costs £2.50 for the first six months and £10 thereafter on the Small Plan. The Medium Plan, which comes with 300 minutes, 3,000 texts and 500MB of data, costs £3.75 on contract.

The Huawei Ascend G330, which has a 4 inch screen and five megapixel camera, costs the same as the Ascend G510 and comes with BBC iPlayer and EA Games preloaded.

TalkTalk mobile director Dan Meader said: “It’s amazing that TalkTalk customers can now enjoy all the benefits of a smartphone, like being able to check emails and look up maps on the go, for less than it costs to catch a bus in most parts of Britain.

“This is another example of TalkTalk and Huawei working together to bring lower prices and better value to British customers.”
