Vodafone 360 Samsung H1 now available
UK wireless carrier Vodafone is now offering the Vodafone 360 Samsung H1 smartphone on sale through its website. The device is the first to ship with the carrier's 360 social media platform preloaded. The H1 was especially developed for Vodafone, and sports a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen.
The Vodafone 360 service automatically syncs all contacts from your phone, Facebook, Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk, with Twitter support coming soon. Contacts from the phone are backed up as well. The H1 otherwise features 16GB of storage space, and there is Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5-megapixel camera.
Vodafone is offering the free of charge when customers commit to two-year contracts at the equivalent of at least $49 per month. This includes 600 anytime minutes and unlimited Internet and e-mail access. Those who order the device now are expected to receive it by October 30th. [via TechDigest]
