by on Apr.13, 2012, under Featured

Just when you think you’ve got your surround sound speaker or home theater system or the latest LCD TV perfected, a new standard or technology comes along to blow away the performance and confidence of your existing setup. You have just bought the latest mobile phone available in the market with all the latest features like great camera, super fast processor, touch screen but soon you come to know you have a superior version available. Technology tends to get outdated very quickly these days.

People like to stay up to date when it comes to gadgets be it mobile phones or their laptop or be it any gadget. Take the case of iPhone you have a new one every year. What is the worth for your old one. Gadgets age fast indeed very fast, it’s even worse for computers, whose age is even lesser. You bought one with the best processor available, huge memory and everything available on board but this configuration might not be the best just even after a month. Which leaves gadget fancy people with no option but to upgrade.

This being the case, one can’t help but wonder: What to do with all the electronic clutter? Thankfully, the answer is both simple and good for your household budget. If the product is in good shape, then you could sell it at the online marketplaces. Sure, you can always sell a damaged or partly broken phone, but, obviously, you will not get so many offers than when you will offer it for sale in a good condition.

There are many websites who purchase second hand computers and laptops, used cell phones, Apple iPods, iPhones, PDAs, smartphones, MP3 players, old software with valid serial numbers, and video game consoles and even the quotes are instant.

Then there are websites who won’t buy your gear outright, but here you can list your gadget or item, set up a price and people can bid upon it or buy it directly. These websites have a cut in the deal done.

Always remember – every penny saved will take you a step closer to a purchase of that amazing new high-tech upgrade.

Vodafone 150 250

Vodafone has come out with a low cost mobile phone for the common man of India, who can’t go for the other high end phones available in the market. The company now brings the Vodafone 150 and Vodafone 250 mobile phone which come with an affordable price tag attached to it.

Vodafone is looking at emerging markets in order to find potential buyers. The company is seen launching its two handsets into the Indian markets as well as six African markets like The Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, South Africa, Kenya, Qatar and Tanzania. The company is looking forward for the devices to reach at least 60% of the population.

“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 these phones – the Vodafone 150 and Vodafone 250 – will be changed and improved as they become part of the mobile society. I am proud of the work we have done and will continue to do in this critical area of customer empowerment,” revealed Patrick Chomet, Vodafone’s Group Director of Terminals.

The Vodafone 150 and Vodafone 250 provide its customers with a great voice as well as SMS services. They also offer support for mobile payment services. The two mobile phones from the carrier are similar with respect to their specifications and features. The only exception being that the screen of the Vodafone 250 supports color and is just a little bigger when pitted against the Vodafone 150. It also offers an FM radio unlike the latter. The company is providing the phones with a custom-built feature set and packaging design.

The Vodafone 150 is set to retail at under $15 (approx. Rs.693) while the Vodafone 250 is scheduled to retail at under $20 (approx. Rs.924). The exact pricing details will be known when it hits the local market.
