Vodafone to launch v1605 HSDPA/super 3G handset

Mobile phones, PDAs

Just days after Orange announced a HSDPA (super 3G) handset in the form of the SPV M3100, Vodafone is set to follow, with an own-brand version of the HTC TyTN Windows Mobile-based handset, dubbed the v1605.

Details are scarce at present with regards to the specification, but as it’s the TyTN, it should feature a 2.8-inch, 240 x 320 touchscreen display, Wi-Fi wireless networking, tri-band GSM/GPRS, along with 3G and HSDPA. There’s also a two megapixel camera on the back. It should also feature a 400MHz processor, 64MB of RAM and a Micro SD slot for boosting your storage.

You can order it now from Vodafone’s website as a business customer, with price based on number ordered and contract – but prices range up to £250. There’s no confirmed shipping date.
