Vodafone 845

Vodafone last month revealed details of their upcoming low cost Android phone, the Vodafone 845. Manufactured by Chinese company Huawei and powered by Android 2.1 Eclair, the handset measures a slim 100 x 55 x 13 mm and features a 2.8 inch TFT touchscreen display, 320 x 240 resolution (QVGA), 3.2 megapixel camera, 128 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi b/g connectivity and support for triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz. The phone will come preloaded with Vodafone 360 services and have access to the Android Market.

Vodafone is targeting a wider audience with this low cost handset as opposed to traditional smartphone buyers of higher-end phones such as the iPhone 3G and 3GS, Blackberry Bold, Nokia E71, Plam Pre and Google Nexus One. According to a Vodafone press release, the phone will be released in May across a total of 12 markets, although the UK is the only one specifically named.
