Vodafone’s upcoming phones: Qisda QCM-330 with 1280 x 1024 pixels screen, LG GD880 and more

Vodafone, the world’s second largest mobile operator, will soon launch lots of new phones (probably across Europe for the beginning), including its first handset with a 1280 x 1024 pixels touchscreen display (although the resolution could be 1280 x 600 or 1024 x 480).

Said handset is made by Taiwan-based Qisda (which could also make MIDs for Dell) and is named Qisda QCM-330.

The 1280 x 1024 pixels display of QCM-330 measures 4 inches. The phone also features HSDPA, Wi-Fi, accelerometer and a 3MP camera. The handset has a home key which suggests that it might run Android – but we can’t confirm this yet.

As you can see in the photos below, the Qisda QCM-330 looks really nice:

Next we have the LG GD880:

The LG GD880 should come with a 480 x 854 pixels scratch-resistant touchscreen display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5MP camera with HD video recording.

Vodafone 2010 Compass reminds me a bit of the Nokia Twist for Verizon (although it looks way better):

The Vodafone 2010 Compass was designed in collaboration with  German studio nr21 and features: Vodafone 360, Music player, photo camera, and a full QWERTY keyboard.

Vodafone 360 Krystal is a very interesting phone with two displays (one on each side). Apparently, if you place the phone on a foreign newspaper, one display can scan the newspaper’s text, while the other one will show the text translated in your language. The phone should also feature widgets and animated light effects.

I’m not sure if the Vodafone 360 Krystal will be commercially available, or if it’s just a concept.

Vodafone 737 Quincy is a smartphone (not sure about the OS here):

The 737 Quincy features a touchscreen display, an alphanumeric keypad, email, MP3 player, and a 3MP camera.

Vodafone 545 Larry (recently seen at the FCC) is an affordable handset made for emerging markets. It was deigned by the Vodafone Industrial Design Group and Frackenpohl Poulheim Design:

The Vodafone 545 Larry features web browser, email, an ergonomic keypad and a 1.3MP camera.

Vodafone 137 Sting is a resistant phone made out of aluminum and silicone:

The Vodafone 137 Sting will be sold on pre-pay, targeted at “sporty and stylish young people.”

Vodafone 534 Shilpa is an entry-level slider developed in collaboration with Bjoern Frank Design:

And finally, we have the Mio Valinor:

The Mio Valinor is not a phone – it’s a car navigator with a 7-inch display, HD video support, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity.

For the moment, we have no info on the prices and release dates of these new Vodafone devices.

    Ehmm, I think you're mistaking about the QCM330: it's definitely not 1280×1024, and it's definitely not Android. A choice might be a good idea: is it 1280×600 or 1024×480? We report, you decide :)

    Yeah, the screen looks a bit too long for 1280 x 1024 pixels, but for now this is what the sources are indicating.

    It looks like 1024×480 to me, at least because there's one 1024×480 phone around (LG GW990, but it's 4,8″ not 4″).
    And I REALLY doubt Vodafone will use Android on any of its branded phones. Just sayin'.

    No way. It would have to be 400 ppi or something like that.
