First time, I wrote about Vodafone Germany's plans to carry the HTC Prophet as VPA compact s back in March, when I spotted the Prophet at Vodafone's CeBIT stand and now it's available from the German operator.
The Vodafone VPA compact s is based on HTC's Prophet Pocket PC Phone Edition and features Windows Mobile 5.0, quad-band GSM, GPRS and EDGE, Bluetooth, W-LAN and a 2 megapixel camera.
However, unlike it was previewed at the CeBIT, the Vodafone version of the Prophet will not comes in dark anthracite but in silver (basically the same color most HTC Magicians were sold before as well):
While Vodafone confirms, that the VPA compact s is including Microsoft's MSFP (for push E-Mail), there is no information available yet, if the device also supports the Bluetooth stereo profile or not (I don't expect it's supported at all).
Anyway, the VPA compact s is available from now for 539,90 Euro (without a contract) and 129,50 Euro with a 24 month Vodafone 100 contract.
No word given yet, if other Vodafone subsidiaries also plans to introduce the VPA compact s as well.
