officially announced the
Portégé G710 Windows
Mobile 6 Standard smartphone, Vodafone Germany recently unveiled it will launch
Toshiba's new GPS smartphone under its own brand as the "Vodafone VDA GPS" (VDA
is the acronym for Vodafone's touchscreen-less Windows Mobile smartphones).
Since the VDA GPS is based on the Portégé G710, it can be expected that it's
also featuring Windows Mobile 6 Standard with support for quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE
and Bluetooth 1.2 while WiFi is left. However, for sure GPS is part of the
device (which makes sense if you call it VDA GPS) as well as a 2 megapixel
The VDA GPS should be available soon from Vodafone Germany, a price wasn't
given yet. It's not clear if the VDA GPS will be released in other countries
too. At least the device wasn't part of Vodafone UK's
recently leaked roadmap.
