During last week's CeBIT preview, Vodafone (Germany) unveiled further details, how the German carrier will continue with its VPA Windows Mobile-line.
First of all, Vodafone Germany previewed again the previously announced Vodafone VPA compact GPS, Vodafone's version of the HTC Trinity.
As unveiled before, the VPA compact GPS will be shipped GPS-enabled but unlike O2 Germany, which ships the O2 Xda orbit with TomTom's on-board navigation, the VPA compact GPS will includes Vodafone's off-board navigation kit called "Vodafone Navigator".

Vodafone also announced, that it plans to launch a business version of its Vodafone Live! portal and this will also include a software download shop where Vodafone customers can buy and download over the air the right software for their devices.
While the partner wasn't announced yet (more information are expected to be unveiled during the CeBIT), Vodafone confirmed, that the payment is most likely done through the monthly invoice; therefore no credit card is needed.

In addition to the Vodafone Live Business portal, Vodafone also previewed its version of an instant messenger client. Unlike Orange, which announced a cooperation with Microsoft some time ago, Vodafone's messaging client isn't developed in cooperation with any known IM provider like Windows Live, Yahoo! or ICQ, but it's rather a stand-alone service which isn't interconnected with any other instant messaging networks.
However, a Windows Mobile version isn't planned/announced yet but Vodafone will starts in Germany with a PC client only. This makes me even more wonder since most Vodafone Windows Mobile devices excludes the standard Windows Mobile MSN Messenger client.

Cheers ~ Arne
