Wireless carrier Vodafone UK has just added two new Android-based handsets to its online offering. The first of them is the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini, which is now available for purchase for free on Pay monthly plans starting from £20, while the second is the HTC Wildfire, which was put on a pre-order status for the time being, also free on the aforementioned price plan.
“The Sony Ericsson X10 mini
is packed with smart features that make your life a lot easier. You can set up your home screens exactly how you want them - creating shortcuts to your favourite apps, contacts and websites. Get instant Facebook updates. Watch movie trailers. Or use Shazam to name that music track. You'll also find all kinds of apps to download in the Android Market,” Vodafone notes on its website.
Launched on the market as the smaller successor of Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, the X10 Mini
packs all the appealing features of Android in a smaller design. It measures 83 x 50 x 16 mm and weighs in at 88g, while sporting a 2.5-inch touchscreen display, 128MB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a 5-megapixel photo snapper, and more.

The second new Android handset at Vodafone
is the entry level HTC Wildfire, which boasts a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel photo snapper, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, built-in GPS navigation, and a battery that can provide up to 440 minutes of talk time, or up to 690 hours of standby time. The handset measures 106.75 x 60.4 x 12.9 mm and weighs in at 118g. According to Vodafone's pre-order page
, the phone will be delivered on June 15.
“The HTC Wildfire makes it easy to keep up with friends on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. Friend Stream shows all three on one screen – so you can poke, update, tweet and post photos without darting between your favorite sites. […] Hunting for funny texts or that chat you had with a mate is a thing of the past with the HTC Wildfire
. It organises contacts so everything you’ve received from each of them is in one place. It even tells you when friends’ birthdays are coming up,” the carrier states.
