Okay everyone, I was looking around Vodafones website. Weirdly enough, I noticed a new Category. HTC Devices. Can anyone shed any light of this?

Sorry about the image size.. Tis' a little big..

Thanks for the quick response.

I guess they're gonna charge an arm and a leg for that too?

I take it we have no information about what devices will be sold here, (Other than maybe the ones mentioned in the write up)?

Who knows how much Vodafone can charge?

I don't have any info as yet, only Telecom have been selling rebranded HTC handsets (under OKTA). Maybe you could look at the range of handsets to guess. I like the Touch Diamond, though it's a little too square...

Haha, agreed.

I like the look of the Touch Pro.
Although, im a little hesitant of the whole Windows Mobile thing.. Had one of those TyTN II's. Lovely device. Crap OS.

But I guess time will tell.

Cheers, and thanks for the answers.

That depends on your need, interest etc., etc.,

I have Touch Cruise and I really enjoy every moment using it. Now that doesnt mean that its the best device with the best OS Wink

I personally like the HTC Touch series. They are pretty good and impressive.

I agree.

I heard that the 6.1 'upgrade' was an improvement though. And apparantly the home brew ROM's are pretty good.


Also, just to clarify an issue I had.(device has been sold)

Do you experience bad call quality sometimes, like it drops or some other really queer (excuse the term) sounds?

I know its expected from an imported device, however, I believe mine was doing it more than it needed to.
