Sony Ericsson Satio, LG GM750, HTC Tattoo reach Vodafone

Four touchscreen phones hit Vodafone UK

Vodafone UK today added three touchscreen smartphones to its roster that in most cases represent world premieres. The Sony Ericsson Satio is now finally shipping after having been detailed in May and is the handset designer's first Symbian S60 smartphone; besides full third-party app support, it's considered a high-end media phone with a 12-megapixel camera, a 3.5-inch touchscreen, GPS and Wi-Fi. For Sony Ericsson, the phone is a symbolic first as one of its first major devices to use microSDHC cards instead of Memory Stick Micro for storage.

The British carrier is giving the Satio away for free but requires at least a 35 ($55) monthly plan with a two-year contract or a more expensive plan on a shorter 18-month term.

Also on tap is the HTC Tattoo, a promised budget Android phone. It represents a budget alternative to the Hero or Magic with a resistive 2.8-inch touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera but the same 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi as other HTC devices. Like with the Satio, Vodafone says the Tattoo is free to own but only requires a 25 ($40) plan on a full contract.

Lastly, the LG GM750 stands as one of Vodafone's first Windows Mobile 6.5 devices and has the more touch-friendly aspects of Microsoft's OS as well as LG's own S-Class 3D interface. It has just a 3-inch touchscreen but a 5-megapixel camera as well as 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. Pricing for the GM750 matches the Tattoo and only needs a 25 plan to be free to own.

    the LG first of all looks like the cheapest copy of iphone I`ve seen. HTC Tattoo looking good though. Android seems to be quite appropriate, but why does HTC go for WinMo AND adnroid? According to specs and comparisons of new SE phones, Satio is one of my favorites, better than Aino or W995. good compilation of everything that was good in SE phones - camera & entertainment.
    but why the heck is there always that carrier debate... damn, two years contracts??????? give me a phone with a teleporting app so I`d be up to date even then.
