You mean for Vodafone to release it? That usually lags around 6months behind the release of handsets internationally. If you mean parallel imported then should be a few weeks.

For roughly the same money I'd much rather go for the Samsung Innov8... check it out if you haven't looked into it already.

Try Expert infotech, i have no affiliation but their price was good (under 1k incl) even tho they screwed up and sent me the black instead of the silver.

I can report since upgrading to latest firmware 042 it is a nice phone, all sorts of issues before hand tho, this one has been rushed to market but it will turn out a nice mobile when they have finished writing the o/s.  you will need to do firmware update via pc to make it work it wont download a new one 'over the air'.

The display is the best ive ever seen on a phone, very nice contrast.  camera is a bit noisy but still very good for a phone.  gps is good-average but getting better with firmware revisions. 

i'm glad i waited for this instead of settling on the c702.

if you are running the 38 firmware upgrade it now
makes it about 40% better if you need a random number for how much better it is :)
