With Christmas around the corner, it’s important to get your loved ones something nice to go under the tree. Why not make it an affordable mobile phone?
Omio has made a list (and checked it twice) of Pay As You Go handsets currently available, all of which are cool enough to be caught under the mistletoe with!
Luxury at a low price

LG Cookie KP500 – £109.95 on e2save (includes £10 airtime top-up)
Available on Orange and T-Mobile, the LG Cookie is the first affordable full touchscreen handset, offering high-spec technology but not at the expense of style. The user interface is specialised for use by directly pressing the screen but the Cookie is bundled with a stylus for handwriting recognition also. The Cookie is also equipped with a 3.15 megapixel camera, making it a cheap and capable alternative to the iPhone.

Great for girls
