A 59 euro Firefox mobile phone
While a number of tech firms are looking at emerging markets and low-cost entry smartphones to boost the bank account, few have gone so far as to create mobile devices for no more than 59 euros ($81).
Running the Mozilla Firefox operating system, Alcatel's Fire C smartphone includes a 3.5-inch HVGA screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and VGA camera.
The phone is due to ship out in the first quarter of 2014.

A data compressing, roaming cost saving app
Opera Max, a free, data saving app has been launched at Mobile World Congress this year.
The application compresses data across applications including video, text and images on your mobile device -- in order to get the most out of data plans and make roaming cheaper. The company says that your data plan's life can be extended by up to 50 percent.
A beta version is currently available and pre-registered Android users in the U.S. and Europe are able to download a version of the application.
