The screen doesn't dominate the 100 x 56 x 14.2mm body as much as you'd think, though, and the handset could be a good deal smaller there.There's plenty of room around the screen and the four plastic buttons (Call, Menu, Back, End call) at the base of the device are pretty thumb-friendly too.The phone was developed by Huawei, the Chinese company behind the T-Mobile Pulse and Pulse Mini.

vodofone 845 updating to android 2 2-27

Vodafone has made no indication in regards to a price point for the pint-sized phone, but as details emerge we’ll keep you in the loop.

Hello, I'd like to ask if it's possible to upgrade my vf845 joy from android 2.1 to android 2.2.

In the centre of those buttons is a touch-sensitive trackpad, which enables you to scan through and summon Home screens.

The chassis itself is metallic, with a distinctly different (and hard to remove) plastic back.

On the back of the device is the 3.2-megapixel camera and the speaker, while the right-hand edge houses the metal volume controls.

On top of the device is the power switch (which also locks the screen) and case release flap, while underneath is a 3.5mm headphone jack and micro-USB charging port.It's the same weight as the HTC HD Mini, while being 10g lighter than the X10 Mini.It's not exactly the slimmest at 14.2mm, with the HTC Desire at just 11.9mm, but we're not going to sit here quibbling about 2.3mm on a handset packing this much into a tiny body.Hardware controls include an optical joystick and a number of physical buttons, which should please those less enamoured with touch-sensitive keys, and apparently Vodafone’s 360 networking and app platform is preloaded along with the usual “Google Experience” apps.There’s talk of a Q2 2010 launch in Europe, but no word on pricing at this stage.Details on a new, ultra-compact Android 2.1 smartphone have emerged, the Vodafone 845.
