Vodafone beefs up Android offerings

Vodafone said it has added three new Android-running handsets to its roster of mobile phones available on the UK.

Google's own phone OS is certainly emerging as flavour of the moment with mobile phone buyers un-wooed by the predominance of Apple's iPhoney offerings.

Vodafone's own-brand 845, HTC's Wildfire and Samsung's Galaxy S 16GB are all available to buy on Vodafone's network from today, the firm proclaimed in a statement this morning.

The Vodafone 845 is free to users signing two years of their lives away and a £15 per month call plan, which includes just 100 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of mobile data.

The HTC Wildfire is 'free' on £20, 24-month price plans, including 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of mobile data. To get your mitts on the Samsung Galaxy S 16GB for no up-front cash you'll have to sign up to a £35, two-year price plan, which includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of mobile data.
