It's not just Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10 that get to revel in 4G-ready goodness; Android wants in too. Step in and take a look at our growing list of evolved Android dream machines...
It’s a busy time at Vodafone. While last week saw the launch of BlackBerry 10 and the top-end dream machine that is the BlackBerry Z10, this week’s seen our Windows Phone 8 devices hit store shelves too, including the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. And what do those phones all have in common? 4G-readiness. And the best bit? They’re not alone; Android wants in on the action too. It’s time to say hello to the HTC One SV and the rest of our Android-powered, 4G-ready* pioneers.
“Our 4G-ready phones all stand at the very forefront of mobile tech…”
Ok, hang about… Before we get going we should probably shed some light on what 4G-ready actually means. In case you’ve missed the news, our 4G-ready phones stand at the very forefront of mobile tech; they’ve each got the necessary bells and whistles to play nice with Vodafone’s 4G service when it goes live later this year.
And that’ll mean blistering speeds and faster downloads.
Couple that with the power and versatility that comes with Google’s Android operating system, and you’ve got something special. Without further ado, then, let’s take a look at how our 4G-ready Android line-up is developing:
HTC One SV
Slim and powerful. Those are the two best words our brains can muster when talking about the HTC One SV. Behind the 4.3-inch super LCD-2 display sits some seriously potent tech, including a dual-core 1.2-GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). That’s as well as the requisite superpowers to make the SV 4G-ready, too. Oh, and all that’s sandwiched into a body that’s only 9.2mm thick. Swish.

Samsung Galaxy S III 4G
Thought the Galaxy S III couldn’t get any better? So did we, but then Samsung showed up at our door with a version of the award-winning smartphone stuffed to the gills with 4G-ready goodness. And here it is: Android evolved. It’s still got the stunning 4.8-inch display, the monstrous quad-core processor and the full complement of features that Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) provides, but now the Galaxy S III 4G is ready to hook up to our next-gen service.

And there’s one more on the horizon…
Sony Xperia Z
Sony’s swanky new monolith is hugely powerful, sleek and oh-so pretty. And it’ll be 4G-ready when it arrives (which will be soon, we promise).
Read up on all the Sony Xperia Z has to offer, and keep your browser fixed on Vodafone Social for details of when the pre-order process opens later this month.
