We have heard the rumors of a new Windows Mobile based Smartphone coming
from Vodafone already and now, the good pals over at the FCC have uploaded
the specs and some photos of Vodafone's latest Windows Mobile VPA.
Following other carriers like O2 Asia, it looks like also Vodafone is
looking after some other manufactures since this device isn't an HTC
Smartphone but coming from AsusTek. According to the FCC, the VPA IV is
sporting Windows Mobile 5 for Smartphone, featuring UMTS and triband
GSM/GPRS, 128 MB ROM and 64 MB SDARM which can be extended through
microSD memory cards, a 2.2-inch QVGA display, Bluetooth 1.2, a 3.5mm
headphone jack and a 1100mAh battery. However, since it is addressing
the business market, Vodafone left the photo camera as well as a video telephony
camera on the front:
Neither a release date nor a price was given yet but if it appears
on the FCC now, it might be still released this year.
