Following the launch of Vodafone's 3G Mobile Connect Card for business customers in April this year and the completion of initial trials for its 3G consumer service, Vodafone UK is offering several thousand of its customers the opportunity to experience Vodafone live! 3G in the company's largest trial to date for a new product or service, ahead of full commercial launch later this year.
Targeted Vodafone live! customers in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow will be able to experience the multimedia mobile service on its 3G version, during this trial. They will also be able to access a select range of new services such as video calling, video downloads (sport, news, music and general entertainment) and the streaming of live events to their handset, as well as existing services such as video messaging. The initial trial handsets will be the Samsung Z105, shortly followed by the Sony Ericsson Z1010 (read our review of this mobile phone).
The company says Vodafone live! 3G will be enhanced later this year, when there will be a wider selection of handsets available.
