The Vodafone 360 suite of services has been designed and developed by
Vodafone. At launch the full Vodafone 360 experience will be available on two
exclusive handsets built to Vodafone's specification by Samsung. The Vodafone
360 H1 by Samsung boasts a 3.5" multitouch, high definition OLED screen, 16 GB
memory, WiFi and a 5 megapixel camera. It will be followed shortly by a second
Samsung handset, offering customers a range of colors and price points.
At launch four Nokia Symbian smartphones will come pre-loaded with Vodafone
360 and part or all of the service will be downloadable to over one hundred
popular phones. In the coming months Vodafone will be making the service
available through as wide a selection of handsets and operating systems from
multiple manufacturers as possible.
Vodafone 360 is a substantiator of Vodafone's new brand expression - "power
to you" (which replaces "make the most of now") - which is focused on putting
the customer in control and enabling simple and easy to manage communications,
both mobile and fixed.
The 2009 launch in Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal,
Spain and the UK will be followed by launches in a number of other countries in
2010, including India, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand and Romania and in
France through SFR, through MTS in Russia and through Vodafone Hutchison
