    imageFor the price of a couple of cups of coffee, you get a full-fledged phone with a two-color OLED screen, Bluetooth and the ability to play MP3 music. All this in a transparent green case.

The fastening of internal components probably also reduces the cost of production - the screen, lithium-polymer battery and other parts are simply soldered to the motherboard.
