Not content with offering the Android-based HTC phones Legend and Desire, Sony Ericsson's X10, and Google's own Nexus One, Vodafone today announced an own-brand smartphone running the much-promoted OS.

The Vodafone 845 comes with Android 2.1; a 3.2Mp camera; 2.8in touchscreen; quad-band GSM/GPRS connectivity and support for tri-band 3G HSDAP links; Wi-Fi; Bluetooth; and GPS.

Vodafone said it will load the handset up with its 360 software that links into the carrier's online music, video and other services.

The 845 goes on sale in May. Vodafone didn't say what it will charge for the handset, but we forecast it'll be free on two-year contracts of £30 a month. ®
