Vodafone Group today announced its range of Christmas 2007 consumer handsets offering the widest choice of exclusive and Vodafone branded handsets ever. The line-up includes the latest premium models from leading handset suppliers, a range of open system devices enabling easy downloads and a compelling set of Vodafone branded handsets.
Furthermore, Vodafone said that a "broad range of open system devices customized for Vodafone will deliver excellent browsing, Internet services and message support, including two new Microsoft Windows Mobile handsets".

Well, it's not yet clear if Vodafone is referring to the already announced but so far unreleased LG KS20 and /Vodafone VPA compact V or if the carrier will release additional models. However, there are real chances we might see a new Windows Mobile-powered Palm smartphone announced this Wednesday, which - if Windows Mobile-based - might be released by Vodafone this year.

In the Palm blog, Stephanie Richardson recently posted an entry which said "It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's not Centro. There's been a lot of buzz about the new device our friends across the "pond" are planning to announce on September 12th... and it's not the Palm Centro smartphone!"

You remember, we all have seen a leaked photo of a Vodafone branded Palm Centro look-alike Windows Mobile 6 Standard powered smartphone before and maybe that - together with another yet unknown device - are the two Windows Mobile smartphones Vodafone Global is referring to?

In my humble opinion it would makes perfectly sense because other phone models were mentioned with its brand and device name, just the two Windows Mobile devices weren't mentioned with its name which sounds to me that Vodafone is talking about so far unannounced and maybe even unknown devices.

UPDATE: Looks like Vodafone isn't talking about the rumored Palm device but is referring to the Samsung SGH-i640V and the Vodafone 920 (which was even not mentioned in the press release but only appears in the photo archive) Windows Mobile Standard smartphones. Click the links above for more information (and photos) about both devices.
