The tech world's love affair with Android just keeps heating up. Vodafone's low-cost 845 handset is set to launch with the latest version of Android, 2.1 or 'Eclair', and some impressive specs including HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS.
Manufactured by Huawei, the Voda-branded 845 is the most compact Android phone yet, with a 2.8-inch touch-screen (resistive, as you'd expect from an 'affordable' phone) at QVGA resolution, a 3.2-megapixel camera and 512MB on-board memory along with a microSD slot.
Vodafone's 360 social network service is preloaded, so you'll have access to the Voda 360 apps, as well as be able to back up contacts and media online, as well as stream updates from Facebook and Twitter to your homescreen.
It should also pony up an impressive battery life, with a large-for-its-size 1200 mAH battery. Vodafone is offering the handset for an expected price of £130, or free on selected tariffs.
Last seen in murky snapshots, the Vodafone 845 is now officially official and can be preordered from the Vodafone site for a May launch. And we, for one, welcome our new Android overlords.
