dora007a: and i-mate, the OEM company HTC already have some cool new phones but vodafone is still selling the older version and is twice as expensive..
i-mate is not selling the new versions yet anywhere in the world. The ones Vodafone is currently selling here (PDA2k, PDA2, i-mate JAM, i-mate SP3, i-mate SP3i) are the latest current versions.

i-mate haven't announced any new devices yet - currently there is speculation about the HTC Universal, HTC Wizard and other models being available in the near future. Also the HTC Universal on Vodafone Germany, O2, T-Mobile and Orange are only "announced" but not available (wait until October).

Hi Ambrose_1,
Of course you can't flash a Z800 to V800.... -_- I don't think it has anything to do with vodafone.

SEUS works by SE allowing certain firmware versions of handsets to update if a newer firmware is available. This relates to the original source of the handset. If you go and buy a V800 its unlikely that SEUS will be available. If you were in Europe say and purchased an unbranded handset from SE then an update will be made available to you if one exists.

Vodafone customised firmware doesnt use SEUS so that is the only way Vodafone are preventing the update and if VF have a deal to sell a V800 with customised firmware then its likely customisation will be done in house seperate from SE who operate SEUS.

I think this has gone off topic, we all know that at this point in time only an authorised handset can access vodafone live which is the delivery method for 2 of the 4 3G services available on vodafone. This move shows nous by vodafone to reinforce use of authorised channels rather than parallel importers. This also means that users who save a buck may not get what they want.

I am all for lower mobile prices but that is life and the move by vodafone is clever and obiviously well implemented.
