Afrihost Zest T1 smartphone with free data – special deal unveiled

Afrihost will be offering an Android smartphone and 1GB of mobile data per month to the first 1,000 people who order its new Zest T1 deal for R1,999 once-off.

Sales for this promotion will open on Wednesday, 18 June 2014, with normal sales resuming on 19 June 2014.

According to Afrihost, they are selling the phone for the price of R1,999 and throwing in the 12GB of data (1GB per month for 12 months) for free.

Zest Mobile is also giving away pre-order codes for the Zest T1 on its Facebook page with “a large batch of 50 codes” expected to drop on Sunday.

If you use up the 1GB, Afrihost’s out-of-bundle data rate of 10c/MB will apply.

We are unsure what this deal will cost outside of the promotion, but Afrihost did say that the normal recommended retail price for the Zest T1 is R2,499.

Many of the technical details of the device are unknown, including which system-on-chip it uses, and its physical characteristics such as dimensions and weight.
