There may be more to come. The whisper is that Amstrad may soon sign a deal to make mobile phones for the recently launched Cable & Wireless One-2-One service. The product could be right up Amstrad's street - cheap, mass-market and high-volume.
Amstrad has the manufacturing capability: it bought the Danish telecoms company DanCall last month. And it has the brainbox, having re-recruited Robert Watkins, the technical director who helped create many of Amstrad's past successes before sloping off to join Binatone. At 50p, the shares are worth a flutter.Reuse content
