Vodafone UK subscribers might be more worried about the lack of Nexus One units to go around, but if you’re looking for something special in the bargain bin, it’s certainly worth taking note that the Vodafone 247 has been unveiled as well, hot on the heels of the Vodafone 845. Since the 247 is positioned at the carrier’s ultra low cost handset (ULHC) range, it doesn’t offer any groundbreaking functions, but it does offer a solar panel at the back, which is something you rarely see in any phone, regardless of whether it’s a high end or low end device. Thanks to its solar panel, this might actually be an ideal phone to take with you on those extended camping trips. There isn’t any price of availability date, but hopefully it won’t be too long before it’s offered at retailers.
