Vodafone intros Smart – a new, cheap Android 2.2 phone

Vodafone has announced a new own-branded Android handset, called Vodafone Smart – which is nothing more than a renamed Huawei U8160.

The Vodafone Smart is a budget-friendly device that’s presented as “a fully-featured smartphone with popular appeal for the next wave of data users.” It runs Android 2.2 Froyo and features a 2.8 inch QVGA display, 3G, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, accelerometer, 3.5m headset jack, Vodafone Music, 2MP camera, and MicroSD card support (up to 32GB).

The handset will be launched in two standard color versions (black and white). However, “customers will be able to personalise their phone, creating their own one-off covers on the web.”

An official video preview of the Vodafone Smart can be watched below:

“More and more Vodafone customers are enjoying the benefits of smartphones which currently account for over 40% of the phones we sell in Europe. Continuing to push the boundaries through our own-brand range, the Vodafone Smart is a new smartphone concept. It takes the higher end mobile internet experience and packages it for the mass market, its range of covers and accessories making it a fun fashion statement,” said Patrick Chomet, Vodafone Group Terminals Director.

Starting June, the Vodafone Smart will be available in Germany, the UK, Italy, and other Vodafone markets. The handset will be offered on Pay As You Go for about €90 ($128).
