Online shopping mall Gmarket selling basic Beta Phones


The nation’s largest online shopping mall, Gmarket, started selling 200 Beta Phones at 79,900 won ($71.27) yesterday.

The Beta Phone is known as a high school senior phone or pager phone as it is only equipped with basic functions such as voice calling and messaging.

Since its battery consumption is low, the phone offers 10 hours of talk time.

The online retailer also provides an adapter to use a micro USIM. For mobile carrier and payment plans, users can choose SK Telecom, KT or thrifty mobile virtual network operators (MVNO).
