Phones cheaper than cake; good or bad?

Should something like a mobile phone be sold for less than £10, or is this just the way of the world?

I was wandering around my local ASDA the other night, hunting down any sneaky bargains and generally killing time, when I came across a startling sight. There was a giant heap of boxed Samsung E1120’s, for a jaw dropping £10 each! OK, the E1120 is only the most basic of basic phones, and it’s on Orange PAYG (with £5 free talk time, mind!) but nonetheless, it’s still a fully functioning mobile phone for a tenner. That’s cheaper than some cakes!
