Vodafone reveals Christmas handset line-up

Vodafone has announced its range of Christmas 2007 consumer handsets that includes exclusives and "premium" models.

Three premium 3G broadband (HSDPA), handsets will be offered - the Nokia N95 8GB, the Samsung SGH-F700V and the Sony Ericsson W910i.

Two BlackBerry handsets from Research In Motion (the BlackBerry Curve 8310 and BlackBerry Pearl 8100) will be available to both business and consumer customers, including the exclusive version of the BlackBerry Curve 8310 with built-in GPS.

A range of open system devices customised for Vodafone will apparently deliver excellent browsing, internet services and message support, including two new Microsoft Windows Mobile handsets as well as a range of six devices based on the S60 platform.

Six exclusive 3G handsets from leading suppliers, tailored for Vodafone customers will be revealed close to launch, while 13 3G broadband (HSDPA) consumer handsets will be available.

Mid-tier priced handsets such as the Nokia 6120c will be offered along with the new Vodafone own branded 3G phones.

The Vodafone 810 is a slider in metallic-silver finishing with multimedia features and the Vodafone 720 comes in a clam shell design with a hidden display and super flat keypad.

The Vodafone exclusive music-focussed Sony Ericsson V640i will be available in a fresh new candy bar design offering 3G broadband (HSDPA) to support faster downloads of music services.

The launch of Omniphone's MusicStation has also been announced for Vodafone's network, offering all-you-can-eat music downloads for £1.99 a week.
