Consumers will also have access to the newest music and TV services from the extended 3G handset range.

The extended range includes: 24 Vodafone live! with 3G handsets, all offering Mobile TV services

6 3G broadband consumer handsets from Motorola and Samsung, allowing faster access to multi media services such as mobile TV and full track music downloads, faster download of music and video files and high speed download of emails when the handset is used as a modem for the PC.

10 Vodafone exclusive 3G handsets which include well known European, US and Asian manufacturers. Five of the Vodafone exclusives will be offered at entry level pricing. Vodafone’s first own branded 3G handset – the Vodafone 710– will be another phone priced at the lower end to encourage further adoption of 3G services amongst the pre-pay market.

This range also includes Vodafone live! with 3G handsets manufactured for Vodafone by LG for the first time. The two handsets are the LG KU800 - a stylish 3G slider handset with innovative touch keypad - and the LG L600V, at entry level pricing. Both LG handsets support Vodafone live! with 3G services, including video telephony and full track music downloads.

Frank Rovekamp, Global Chief Marketing Officer, Vodafone Group, said: "This attractive range of handsets extends Vodafone’s lead in 3G and offers a wide diversity of choice for our customers. We have secured good exclusivity with the leading handset manufacturers from the US, Europe and Asia, and we are delighted to offer our first phones from new vendor LG as well as our first own branded 3G handset for consumers.
