Mobile by Sainsbury s tackles Tesco Mobile in supermarket phone war

You might not love the name but Mobile by Sainsbury's may be able to offer you a smartphone at a price which you are instantly attracted to later this summer.

Sainsbury's isn't becoming a mobile operator itself, instead it's teamed up with Vodafone which will provide the masts (read: signal) for any device you purchase through the superstore - while O2 is powering the rival Tesco Mobile operation.
