BIC Phone

Cheap razors, cheap pens and cheap phones. BIC.

Looking for a cheap prepaid phone but not sure which one to choose? In 2007, someone at France Telecom’s (NYSE:FTE) Orange decided that consumers would jump at a cell phone with the BIC logo slapped on it.

If you wanted one of these (and who wouldn’t for the novelty factor alone?), it meant a trip to Spain. Or a few minutes on eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY).

As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
