When we first glanced at Vodafone’s first self-branded Android phone, it kind of took us by surprise: it’s surprisingly small. Its 2.8-inch QVGA screen screams budget phone, but we won’t discriminate. The guys at TheUnwired first gave us a sneak peak at the small bugger, and now it’s official: the Vodafone 845 (what some may know as the Huawei Joy) is on its way.
Patrick Chomet, Group Director of Terminals said, “In February we launched the world’s cheapest handset. Today we are again breaking new ground. I’m proud to be announcing the 845, Vodafone’s first own branded Android smartphone. It runs the very latest Android ‘Eclair’ software and shows our commitment and ability to take high-end trends and make them an affordable option for many.”
It’s powered by Android 2.1 – which makes us curious what type of processor is powering this thing – and will be available in 12 different markets which Vodafone currently offers service. Take a look at Vodafone’s introduction to the 845 ahead.
