Samsung Galaxy S and HTC Wildfire hit Vodafone

Ok, it's not exactly the best week to go and buy non-Apple handsets, not least if you have to join an Apple throng to get one. But just in case you do fancy something that isn't an iPhone and want it now, Vodafone has announced the availability of the HTC Wildfire and Samsung Galaxy S from today, as well as its own branded Vodafone 845.

All are Androids, with the Samsung Galaxy S exclusive to Vodafone. Starting with the HTC Wildfire, well, that was originally pitched as a teen-friendly touchscreen, claiming to bring 'the full Sense experience to 18-25 year olds'. So a Desire-like phone with Android 2.1, a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch, a five-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash, plus HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity. It's free on £20 per month price plans over 24 months, including 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of mobile data.

The Samsung Galaxy S also offers Android 2.1, but this time with a four-inch WVGA super AMOLED touchscreen, Qualcomm's 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and a five-megapixel camera with HD. The handset is 'free' on a £35, 24-month price plan, which includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of mobile data.

Finally, Vodafone has sneaked out the Vodafone 845, another network exclusive and another Android 2.1 phone. This one offers up a 2.8-inch screen, 3.2-megapixel camera and GPS for £15 per month over 24 months, that deal including 100 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of mobile data.
