Vodafone slashes pay as you go prices this weekend

Attention, bargain hunters. Vodafone has cut the prices on three pay as you go mobiles for this weekend only.

Fancy something for the weekend? How about a cheap as chips pay as you go mobile from Vodafone? The big red operator has slashed the prices on select handsets this weekend.

You can pick up the Nokia Asha 300 in black for £50. That handset usually sells for around £89, so a £40 saving isn't to be sniffed at. But that's not the only cut-price mobile Voda is offering.

You can pick up the BlackBerry Curve 9320 for £70. Tesco Mobile currently offers the 9320 for £79, which is the cheapest I could find it for, so again, there are savings to be had. Finally, the Huawei Ascend G510 drops to £90 (that's £80 for the handset when bought with £10 credit -- or a Freedom Freebee as Vodafone insists on calling it). The G510 can be had for £89.90 from Play.com, but that's without the extra credit.

The deals can only be had in-store, so I'm afraid you'll have to hit the high street if you want to take advantage.

The Asha 300 is a bit long in the tooth now, seeing as it launched more than two years ago. It's not going to cut it with the big boys nowadays, but if you want a cheap, simple phone, it could be worth a look. It could be a good option as a second phone, if you're worried about losing your prize blower on a night out.

The Curve 9320 only scored two and a half out of five in our review about a year and a half ago. But if you want BBM on a budget, and long for the days when physical keyboards were the norm, then it might be for you.

Huawei's G510 is the most recent of the three, but it's still almost a year old. It's got a 4.5-inch display, which is impressive at this price.

Would you buy any of the above? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page.
