Vodafone UK tighten out-of-bundle data fees (to smartphone users’ horror)

Vodafone UK tighten out-of-bundle data fees (to smartphone users’ horror)

With high-profile, data-heavy handsets like the Google Nexus One, HTC Desire and Microsoft KIN either available or imminent to their network, it comes as little surprise to see that Vodafone UK are tightening up their 3G data policy; still, it's not going to win them many fans.  According to a Vodafone forum administrator, as of June 2010 any pay monthly customers with a 500MB data bundle on their contract will pay £5 ($7) for every 500MB over the included data they use.  Meanwhile those without a monthly bundle will pay £0.50 ($0.74) for every 10MB after the first 25MB.  Up until now, customers exceeding the limits had not faced any extra charges.

Tiny Vodafone 845 Android 2.1 phone spotted

Tiny Vodafone 845 Android 2.1 phone spotted

Android devices with 2.8-inch QVGA displays haven't exactly been flooding the market, but if you're holding out for an ultra-compact handset running Android 2.1 Eclair then just such a thing may be almost upon us.  Freshly leaked to the::unwired, the Vodafone 845 has dualband UMTS/HSPA, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1, along with a 3.2-megapixel camera, but measures a sub-Tattoo 100 x 55 x 13 mm.

The 845 hardware is apparently the handiwork of Huawei, with the phone being otherwise known as the Joy.  It won't be the first time we've seen a Huawei Android device attempt to take a bite out of the entry-level market; the company are responsible for the T-Mobile Pulse, a budget Android smartphone though with a 3.5-inch touchscreen rather than the Vodafone 845's compact panel.
