Vodafone announces line of 3G handsets for Christmas
It may be now that 3G will get a push, since Vodafone is announcing a collection of 10 new mobile phones supporting 3GSM (WCDMA). Other mobile operators have been struggling to get handsets in number - and models. But Vodafone is planning to have new mobile phones available for the Christmas period, following the launch of the Vodafone Mobile Connect 3G datacard and the successful introduction of Vodafone live! with 3G.

Vodafone is working with Sharp, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, NEC, Nokia and Samsung to provide customers with a wide choice of 3G handsets at a range of prices. These handsets will be available with a broader array of services across Europe and Japan. This new range of Vodafone 3G handsets, all featuring Vodafone’s multi-media consumer service, Vodafone live!, has been designed in close collaboration with manufacturers to allow consumers to experience the benefits of enhanced Vodafone live! with 3G services.

The handset range, which includes models and designs exclusive to Vodafone, will enable significant improvements in imaging, music, entertainment and information. Highlights include Europe’s first 2 megapixel camera phone, equipped with auto focus, optical zoom and high resolution displays; handsets that offer CD music quality, stereo speakers and MP3 players; access to 3D gaming; video and audio streaming and video calling. Customers can use Vodafone’s new generation of 3G handsets in both Europe and Japan as services will be delivered seamlessly by Vodafone’s global 3GSM (WCDMA) networks.

The portfolio includes the Sharp 802, Sharp 902, Motorola E1000, Motorola V980, Motorola C980, NEC’s Vodafone 802N, Sony Ericsson V800, Nokia 6630 (pictured), Samsung Z110V and Samsung Z107V. Full details of these services and handset availability will follow later in November.
