Vodafone intros 533 Catwalk Collection, 541 Touch and more
Vodafone, one of the world’s largest mobile carriers, has announced no less than eight new phones that will be soon available under its own brand – at about the same time with the LG GM750 Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone.
The new Vodafone handsets range from stylish and expensive devices to basic, affordable ones (some of them are manufactured in collaboration with MediaTek).
Let’s start with the Vodafone 533 Catwalk Collection.
This includes three different editions of the same phone: Vodafone 533 Catwalk Red, Vodafone 533 Catwalk Lady (designed by Berlin-based artist Tomek Sadurski), and Vodafone 533 Catwalk Crystal. They share the same technical features: 176 x 220 pixels display, Bluetooth 2.0, FM radio, Vodafone Mail, 1.3MP camera, and tri-band GSM/EGE connectivity (900/1800/1900 MHz).
The Vodafone 533 Crystal has been dressed by CRYSTALLIZED with 126 precision-cut crystals made in Austria. The phone also comes with the CRYSTALLIZED logo, and CRYSTALLIZED Swarovski Elements animations.
