3g: I've been using a Vodafone 845 for a week or two now, evaluating it as an alternative platform to Windows Mobile/CE. I find it a good phone, having used Android 1.5 on a Sciphone N19 and 1.6 on an Eken M001.

Anyway, now that I've received my tracking number for my own personal Vodafone 845, I thought I'd mention (if people haven't already seen) that the Warehouse have a special introductory pricing for the Vodafone 845 for $199 (half price).

They are sold out online, but you may be able to pickup one instore.

Enjoy.

I just ordered one from Vodafone NZ on line.

For that price I'll have a good look at it and may flog it through TradeMe before Xmas. Or keep it as a backup or a gift for one of my daughters. :-)

UPDATE 12:50pm: Just got email saying the phone has been despatched and I will have it soon.  So either later this afternoon or sometime tomorrow. That's pretty cool.

No, the WIFI is not working on that on that one. Use the Celestial Teapot one. It is easier to overclock with that one.

Plus it has a pretty sweet opening logo.

Oncop53: My wife's phone is dieing and I want to get her a cheap android.

What would you  choose out of the Vodafone 845 http://bit.ly/bn0o10
or the 2degrees IDEOS U8150 http://bit.ly/9wxhyw

?


Of those two, I'd get the IDEOS. Also in the price range are the LG Optimus GT540 and the SE Xperia Mini 

But the IDEOS comes with Android v2.2, which is a big plus for performance, provided the phone has enough RAM to support JIT. The IDEOS should, with 256Mb. Just. Top line phones have 512MB. HTC Magic 32b has 192MB...and JIT is pretty bad. Just not enough RAM in 192MB.  

ASIDE: None of the <$400 phones can do Adobe Flash. They are all ARMv6-based (the processor)...and the processor in the phone has to be ARMv7 to support Flash on the phone (or other device). Android v2.2 is also required for Flash - so ARMv7 + Android v2.2 = Flash works pretty well on the phone.

Damn!!!

If anyone gets those codes and don't need it, please PM me. I got mine from the Warehouse but it did not come with the sticker.
