Voda’s Samsung 360 pre-order


Vodafone has announced that its 360 Samsung H1 handset can be pre-ordered today online.

The handset will be out on October 30.

Tailor made for Vodafone, the device is the first in a range which delivers Vodafone’s new 360 web portal proposition.

The 360 Samsung H1 has a touchscreen, 16GB memory, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5 megapixel camera. It also features a 3D display that displays a user’s contact list in a gallery-style card stack, with the most frequently contacted friends and family at the front.

Vodafone 360 automatically syncs all contacts from a user’s phone, Facebook, Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk, and will soon also include Twitter. It also automatically backs up all phone content to the internet

The 360 Samsung H1 will be free on 24 month contracts of £35 and above, including unlimited data.

Meanwhile, the network has also launched a website aimed at parents to help them understand and support their children’s online activities.

The website aims to help parents play an active role in their children’s digital world and to understand how they use their mobile phones, and online social media such as Twitter and Facebook.

Vodafone global head of standards content Annie Mullins said: “Many parents tell us that they are baffled by what their children are doing be it on their on their mobile, on Facebook or via their iphones. They say it’s hard to keep up with the pace of change.

“Their desire is to get simple, clear information on everyday matters, such as knowing what age a child should be given a mobile or setting the rules for using Facebook, and very practical advice about what to do.”
