Vodafone is Out Of Nexus One’s Already

How is this possible? Looks like they’ve learned nothing from the recent Desire debacle where the phone keeps getting delayed due to them not having enough in stock. The Nexus One for Vodafone UK just got a release date of April 30th and it seems those devices are already gone.

Google Nexus One arrives Vodafone UK April 30th

Google's Nexus One has been available in the UK as an import since the handset made its debut several months back, but as of April 30th Vodafone UK will be selling the smartphone officially.  In contrast to US sales, which are all through Google's online portal, Vodafone will be stocking the Nexus One in-store and also selling it through their own site; the Vodafone Nexus One will be available from free on new 24-month contracts of £35 per month or higher. Specs-wise it's the same Android smartphone as we've seen so much of already, with a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive multitouch-capable touchscreen, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 3G/UMTS connectivity.  There's a 4GB microSD card in the box, and the Google Maps Navigation beta preloaded. You can preorder the Vodafone Nexus One now, though the website currently says it will be shipped by May 5th; we're checking with Vodafone to see which date is accurate.  What remains to be seen is whether the Nexus One turns out to be more popular than the HTC Desire, which has almost identical specifications but runs HTC Sense. Update: Vodafone UK tell us that if you order a Nexus One today then you'll get it on April 30th; however with the UK Bank Holiday weekend approaching, they didn't want to over-promise on delivery, hence the extra wiggle-room with the May 5th estimate.

Vodafone UK’s Nexus One launching in “April”?

Today Vodafone has updated their "Coming Soon" page for the Nexus One to "Coming Soon/April". From looks of it, it could be a mistake. Why put up an April release in the last days of April? It has been almost four months now that Vodafone customers have been waiting for the Nexus so if this is true you can possibly put in your order today.

Vodafone 845 Android 2.1 smartphone leaks

Details on a new, ultra-compact Android 2.1 smartphone have emerged, the Vodafone 845.  As the name suggests, the handset is apparently headed to European carrier Vodafone, but going by the:unwired's anonymous tipster it's actually the handiwork of Huawei and is known elsewhere as the Joy. As well as triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSPA, the Vodafone 845 packs WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3.2-megapixel camera.  We weren't joking when we said it was small, either; with a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen and dimensions of 100 x 55 x 13 mm it's actually a little smaller than the HTC Tattoo. Hardware controls include an optical joystick and a number of physical buttons, which should please those less enamoured with touch-sensitive keys, and apparently Vodafone's 360 networking and app platform is preloaded along with the usual "Google Experience" apps.  There's talk of a Q2 2010 launch in Europe, but no word on pricing at this stage.

This is one of the sexiest Android devices to date with its high quality aluminum unibody chassis and Sense UI under the hood.  This beauty has just popped up on Vodafone UK’s preorder page.

Vodafone UK confirm HTC Desire and exclusive HTC Legend in April

Vodafone UK have already confirmed that the Google Nexus One is arriving soon, and now the carrier has announced that it will be offering HTC's two latest Android smartphones come April.  The HTC Legend - which will be an exclusive to Vodafone UK - and the HTC Desire will both drop next month. Pricing for the two handsets is yet to be officially confirmed, though we're guessing Vodafone will end up offering them free on at least a few high-end plans.  The Legend has a 3.2-inch HVGA AMOLED touchscreen while the larger Desire has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen; both run Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense UI enhancements. If you're looking for more on the HTC Legend, check out our full review over at SlashGear.  We're still waiting for HTC Desire review units to come through, but you know we'll be all over the Snapdragon-based Sense-toting smartphone when they do.

Verizon Nexus One on sale imminently?

Some people won't be happy until Google's Nexus One is running on Verizon's CDMA network, and while the search giant have confirmed that such a variant is in the works, they haven't made the exact timescale for its release public.  Now, according to a report in a Chinese newspaper, HTC have begun shipping CDMA versions to Verizon, in preparation for a launch this month or in April. The handset is expected to offer exactly the same functionality as the existing GSM Nexus One, only replace the UMTS/HSPA modem with a CDMA version.  However it's not believed to be a so-called world phone; i.e. it isn't expected to include both CDMA and UMTS/HSPA connectivity for worldwide roaming use. The paper also suggests that HTC will ship the GSM version of the Nexus One to European carrier Vodafone "soon".  The UK arm of the carrier put up a new information page for the handset in their "coming soon" section last Friday.
