Being An Android Fan Just Got Cheaper - At Least For UK Users

It was bound to happen. If you make an open source OS that manufacturers can install pretty much as they wish, then sooner or later those manufacturers will start to target those of us with thinner wallets. In the UK, at least, the first salvo of that price war was fired today by Vodafone who are making their 845 model available for as little as £15 ($22) a month.

Now, if you're anything like me, you'll be thinking "Oh yeah? I bet this will be another T-Mobile Pulse (Huawei U8220): plasticy, running 1.5 and with a puny little camera." If so, then like me, you'd be wrong, because the 845 packs quite a punch. For a start it ships with Android 2.1, has WiFi and HSDPA and a respectable 3.2 Mpx camera. In fact, the only disappointment for me was the screen. With a display res of just 320 x 240 px and a resistive sensor, compared to the capacitive technology most of us are used to, it felt a little sluggish. But heck - at fifteen quid a month, who's complaining?
