Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 launches on Vodafone for $169

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 launches on Vodafone for $169

Update: Crazy John’s have told me, that they have had the X8 available for $169 for a few weeks now, so hit them up and grab one, if you wish. It’s old, it’s late but it’s cheap. Vodafone are due to launch the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 on their network on both pre- and post-paid. Starting at $0 upfront on the $19 Cap and $45 Infinite plans, and only $169 on pre-paid, the little 3.2 megapixel, 3″ touch screen handset, is certainly priced by it’s age. Optus picked up the handset almost 6 months ago, now Vodafone are following the[Read More...]

Congratulations, you’ve won a Nexus S!

Congratulations, you’ve won a Nexus S!

As you know, last night Lucas and Buzz stayed up, with caffeinated beverages at hand, going through the 160-odd entries we had for our Nexus S competition run with Vodafone and Samsung. We selected our favourite entries which demonstrated creativity and best captured the essence of Android’s newest platform, Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread. We stuffed those entries in an envelope, and ran it over to Vodafone in North Sydney for them to select a final winner. Vodafone have just run back to us (it’s a long run from North Sydney to the Ausdroid office) and dropped off the winning envelope.[Read More...]

Google Nexus S now available for purchase from Vodafone website

Although this bad boy might not yet be available in stores just yet, you can now purchase it online through Vodafone’s web store. As you can see in the image above their most popular plan for users is $65/mo + $5/mo mobile repayments, which is a fair punch to the hip-pocket.

Desire Z available from Vodafone today

Desire Z available from Vodafone today

A week or so ago Vodafone told us that the Desire Z would be coming soon. Well, it seems Christmas has come early (so to speak), and the Desire Z has now been released on Vodafone. The Desire Z will be available on a range of Vodafone Infinite and Ultimate plans with varying handset installments, though good picks seem to be the $49 cap with $5 a month repayment, or the $65 Infinite plan with no repayments. When we reviewed the Desire Z back in November last, we really enjoyed it. It’s fast, snappy, and the physical keyboard was really[Read More...]

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc coming to both Optus & Vodafone in April

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc coming to both Optus & Vodafone in April

So how about this, mere hours after we showed you the leaked video of the Xperia Arc on Vodafone, Gizmodo AU have confirmed that the Xperia Arc is indeed headed to Vodafone (duh) and Optus as well. The latter makes sense seeing as though it is in the current Allphones catalogue as ‘coming soon’. Sony Ericsson did tell us that it would land here within 3 months, so that April release date fits perfectly. Neither Carrier have released specifics such as release day or pricing, just yet. If you’re not up for waiting a month to get your hands on[Read More...]

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc coming soon to Vodafone, video preview

So we just happened to be browsing the internetz when we stumbled upon an interesting YouTube video that is currently listed as private — meaning you can only view it if you have the URL. What is it? It’s a walk-through of Sony Ericsson’s upcoming Xperia Arc which we recently saw as ‘coming soon’ in Allphones’ catalogue. The video was uploaded by none other than Vodafone Australia, so putting two and two together tells us that this baby is headed to Vodafone in the near future. The video gives you a quick viewing of the 4.2″ Bravia powered display as[Read More...]

App Review: Vodafone Usage (Plus)

App Review: Vodafone Usage (Plus)

The second in Ausdroid’s series of app reviews is here and today we’re looking at two apps – Vodafone Usage and Vodafone Usage Plus. As anyone with a smartphone of any kind will tell you, data is king. Android phones are no different, and depending on your usage pattern, there’s a good chance you’re going to be using a good amount of data, and while mobile plans these days include more and more data, it’s not unlimited, and you need to stay on top of your usage unless paying excess data usage costs is not much of an issue for[Read More...]

Samsung will release Galaxy Tab 10.1 on schedule, but with a cheaper price?

Samsung will release Galaxy Tab 10.1 on schedule, but with a cheaper price?

Recently you may have read that Samsung is feeling the heat from Apple’s iPad 2 announcement. They said something along the lines of their product [Galaxy Tab 10.1] is somewhat inadequate in terms of design and price point. Samsung never gave any indication that they were going back to the drawing board to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 lighter or cheaper, until now. Sammy have spoken to a Korean news site and confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is on schedule, meaning this beast won’t have any radical new design at all as it has already passed the FCC. What[Read More...]
