Vodafone U.K. now offering Nokia N8 and HTC Desire HD
A pair of today's top-of-the-line smartphones are now being launched overseas by Vodafone U.K. in a manner that almost makes those in the U.S. wish that the States were still British colonies. The carrier's web site and retail outlets are both now offering the HTC Desire HD and the Nokia N8. The former is a Froyo flavored Android device that is equivalent to a 4G-less version of Sprint's HTC EVO 4G available in the States. The unit is equipped with a 4.3 inch WVGA display and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor along with an 8MP camera with dual flash and AF.

The Nokia N8 is the Finnish based firm's strongest challenger to the Apple iPhone, matching the 3.5 inch screen size of Apple's touchscreen device and offering users the new Symbian ^3 OS. With a 12MP camera on the back of the phone, the N8 is superior to the majority of handsets when it comes to taking snapshots. Video capture at 720p allows for HD videos.

Vodafone is offering the HTC Desire HD for free with a 24 month plan costing 35BP a month. Buy the phone online and get 900 minutes of uncharged texts and 750MB of mobile data per month compared with the 600 minutes of texts and 500MB of monthly data you receive when buying the unit at a store. Buying the phone online will also entitle you to 5MB of European roaming data.

The Nokia N8 can also be obtained for free with a 2 year, 30BP a month service. A special lime green variant of the model is available for Vodafone buyers only.
