Okay, now that's an interesting device which I have no further information about yet, it was even not mentioned in today's Vodafone Global's press release but it only appears in the photo archive. Anyway - one thing is clear - it's a Windows Mobile Standard smartphone but I have no idea who the manufacture is (since it's a Vodafone branded device only). Also Vodafone hasn't given any further device details so we are left a little bit clueless now.
But what I can say from the image bellow is, that Vodafone's latest (and first) Windows Mobile slider smartphone looks gorgeous:

It's clear that it is a UMTS (most likely HSDPA) device because it also features a front facing camera (and most of Vodafone's new handset are UMTS devices nowadays) but that's it what I was able to figure out so far.

UPDATE: Sources close to Vodafone Germany told the::unwired, that the Vodafone 920 is manufactured by HTC (code name yet unknown) and that the 920 features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS and HSDPA (up to 3.6 Mbps) and Bluetooth. WiFi wasn't yet confirmed. Furthermore, the Vodafone 920 is said to feature a 2.4" QVGA screen, a 2 megapixel camera on the back and a VGA camera on the front.

Stay tuned for more information

Cheers ~ Arne

How beautiful!!! Please tell me (I know, you can't) that it also includes WiFi and features Vodafones latest HSDPA revision at 3.6 Mbps!
Together with the i640 this is the first Windows Mobile Smartphone which combines style with functionality; all the other stuff before was too geeky but this looks like a SE phone!

Arne, I agree! It looks gorgeous! It comes pretty close to my current Nokia 6300 and it is an interesting mix between an Apple iPod and a Nokia 6300. Not sure if you have seen it but over at Mobilitysite the author said it looks 'ugly'. Seems the author has no clue about the current industrial design (which I'm studying at the moment).
Either HTC or Vodafone made something right with the device and design. Truly hope it will be released as a HTC device as well because Vodafone doesn't operates here.
