Gongkai – The Mobile Phone for $12

Yes, you heard right!! $12

A new phone has recently turned up called the Gongkai phone with a price tag of $12. This phone is the product of China’s version of “open source” movement, Gongkai.

You don’t get a lot of technology for that price, but it will make phone calls and if that’s all you need. The green translucent Gongkai phone case allows you to see all the hardware on the inside is pretty cool.


The phone features:

  • Quad-band GSM connectivity
  • Bluetooth
  • MP3 capability
  • OLED small display
  • 260 MHz 32-bit processor
  • 8 MiB of memory
  • Lithium polymer battery

It has a standard SIM card slot and a microSD card for storing music. You don’t get any cameras or fancy smart features, but if you want to give the phone to someone that only needs to make calls this could be the best thing going.

It can be a sport gadget, a cooking gadget, a gaming gadget, a useful gadget (and a fair few un-useful ones)…if its new, I have to play with it. My day job is a city boy helping entrepreneurs get funding for their dreams, by night, I’m a gadget loving dweeb.
