The $12 Gongkai Phone Gives Bang for the Buck

The $12 Gongkai Phone is the perfect solution to travelling out of the country without having to worry about acquiring long-distance charges or dealing with your service provider. With the cost of only $12, the Gongkai Phone truly gives its bang for its buck.

How can this even be possible though? Well, it's not a smartphone, for starters. Nor is it particularly advanced. It's made on the cheap with cheap materials and is contract free (unlocked.) Gongkai is the literal word for "open" in Chinese, just like the phone line of the Gongkai Phone itself.

Complete with bluetooth and MP3 playback, the $12 Gongkai Phone may just be your travelling companion this summer abroad.
