What's up with Vodafone's proposed "strategic partnership" with Fairphone? The staff at the Leamington Spa branch haven't heard anything about it.

I would absolutely love to see the Fairphone being picked up by Vodaphone and all the mainstream networks. Its such a wonderful and ethical company. People need to understand more about where the materials to make smartphones and other electronics come from and the often environmentally destructive practices that provide raw materials, often from mining poor communities into the ground (sorry for the pun). 

 

Fairphone is a great tonic to this. Just wish I could afford to buy one (I will have to ask Father Christmas nicely).

Sky Mobile is also offering the Fairphone. It remains to be seen if the news of this has filtered down to their shop staff.
