Motorola's 3G Vodafone handsets

Mobile phones

Motorola’s contribution to Vodafone’s newly-announced 3G service may look familiar to regular readers, since the company announced a range of 3G handsets back in February. First the E1000, which which we ran a story on after the Cannes launch in Feb(read). The phone’s one of the smallest 3G handsets you’re likely to see for a while. It’s candy bar style with a 1.2-megapixel camera and Bluetooth. There’s also an MP3 player and integrated AGPS services for mobile location.

The V980 has a clamshell design with a colour external LCD and is supposedly an entry-level handset aimed to attract more customers to 3G services. Finally, the C980 candy bar phone looks about as compact as the E1000 and, judging by the picture of the girl with bubblegum, we’re guessing it’s also aimed at the entry-level market.
