At Dicksmith's at least all the Vodafone handsets have been reduced by at least $100
The V1050 from Moto is $648 ($100 less)
The Nokia 6680 is $898 ($100 less)
The SE V600i is $648 ($100 less)
The SE V800i is $748 ($100 less) and
The Samsung V500 is $598 ($300 off its original price of $898)


Why?
Well Vodafone is launching 10 more handsets by Christmas and if you attended the roadshow then you would have seen some of the offerings extending the 3G and the Push to Talk ranges


3G
Sharp 703 1.3 megapixel clamshell with 8Mb internal memory and miniSD slot. BT & IR priced around $799

Sharp 903 3.2 Megapixel camera priced around $1349

Nokia N70

Motorola E770v

Samsung ZV10 - 3G handset with 50mb onboard, bluetooth and twin VGA cameras. A 3G handset under $500 priced at around $449

Motorola V3x - on show at the Vodafone Roadshow

Update:
Samsung ZV30 - 40mb on board and transflash , 1.3 megapixel primary camera, triband (cf. Z500v's quadband), bluetooth, ir. $749

Some questionables:
Nokia 6280
Nokia N90 - When will it arrive through official channels?
Sony Ericsson W900
Samsung ZV140


Non 3G

Sony Ericsson Z520i - Quadband flip with Bluetooth and VGA camera
Motorola SLVR - two different models
Motorola V360v - clamshell, PTT, VGA Cam, 5MB on board and transflash slot ~ $399

So if you are on the lookout for a Vodafone handset there will be good offerings, there is a trade in going on at the moment as some handsets are end of life ie: Sony Ericsson K700

You could even be critical and say that the Nokia 6680 is incredibly similar to the N70 and that the 6680's shelf life may be limited.

mmmm n70 sounds good. i learned that Nokia's E60 and E61 both do not have camera, E70 has single 2MP camera. though they have high resolution... but i like video calling, and N70 is good enough...


I also like to try/see SonyEricsson's p990.

I will have JasJar on hold for now, as it seems too buggy and expensive. Though I might sign up for use with 3G data only. OR if HP releases HX4700 (WM5). otherwise HX2790 or JasJar in the end. (i really like VGA screen)...

johnr: I am thinking of getting the jasjar I wonder what staff rates are
Why? Do you work for them? Ok. jokes aside it is a shame the K-Jam is GPRS and EDGE only, not UMTS.

The SP5 looks great (nice QVGA screen and Wi-Fi) and I would replace my Motorola MPx 220 with this one, but also a shame there is no UMTS version now - have to wait for its next version, with 3G.

I think the Vodafone Windows Mobile line up needs a fast forward.

There is a device the HTC Hermes that I saw on a HTC roadmap documet, it looked like the K-Jam with 3G. I will dig it up soon if someone wants details.

The cheapest price I've heard for a Jasjar is $799 - on a plan probably 24 or 36 months with a large monthly fee.

It is a shame about the K-Jam but the Apache looks promising if you have the ability to change providers.

I like the look of the new Samsung. If it were compatible with iSync, then I'd seriously consider buying one.

Still, I'm not desperate to get my hands on a 3G phone until the price of data traffic comes down.
