Vodafone UK won’t bring to its network some of the latest Android-based smartphones from South Korean handset vendors Samsung and LG.
The mobile phone carrier has just confirmed that it does not plan to range any of these, although other operators in the country have already confirmed that they will be selling them.
We’re referring here to devices such as Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, along with LG’s new L-Style range, which includes the LG Optimus L3, the LG Optimus L5 and the LG Optimus L7.
In fact, the wireless carrier said that it actually did not have any plans regarding these phones for the moment, but that changes might emerge in the future.
Other wireless services providers in the UK, however, rushed to announce plans to add these devices to their offerings.
Among them, we can count Three UK, which has already put Samsung’s Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2
on coming soon pages on its website, as well as Orange and T-Mobile. O2 also confirmed plans to make the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 available for its customers.
With the Mobile World Congress set to kick off in Barcelona in less than a week, it does not come as too much of a surprise that Vodafone is holding its horses when it comes to planning new additions to its lineup.
A great deal of highly appealing smartphones should make a debut at the event, including the first quad-core handsets
in the world, powered by Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
The wireless carrier might plan the release of some of those devices, so keep an eye on this space for more on the matter. In the meantime, however, do note that Recombu
managed to confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) tablet PC was a possible candidate for Vodafone’s airwaves.
