Vodafone Adds Android-based 945 Smartphones

Vodafone has added one Android-based handsets to its portfolio, the 945, which is a follow up to the Vodafone 845 which was released back in April 2010.

The 945 comes with a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen with haptic feedback and can display 480x272 pixels which is only a third of some competitors can produce.

It is powered by Android OS 2.1 and apparently offers unrestricted access to tens of thousands of applications in addition to Vodafone music services with a catalogue of more than two million DRM-free tracks (ed : you will have to pay for that though).

Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with flash, GPS, Wi-Fi, 300MB of onboard storage, up to 32GB additional storage (via a microSD card) and an FM radio.

It also has three buttons on the front, a rather large speaker at the back and a microUSB port on the side plus what appears to be a front facing camera.

The 945 - which will be available in silver or black - won't be available in the UK for the time being according to multiple sources; which is odd given that we received a press release.
