Vodafone Personal Assistant III (VPA III)

Ahhh, what a thing of beauty.  This is the one I want. 

vodafone_vpaiii.jpg imageVodafone has met the call of the XDA IIs with a Windows Mobile smartphone of their own, called the Vodafone Personal Assistant III, or VPA III. And the best bit of news? It's a quad-band, so it should be a mail-order lover candidate if you find its built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SDIO slot, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and VGA camera appealing. If those specs sound at all familiar, it's probably because they are almost the same as the XDA IIs and the T-Mobile MDA III, as well. In fact, I'm pretty much losing all ability to discern one of these things from another, which will probably become even more obvious when someone tells me what other Pocket PC phone this VPA III should be reminding me of. (Probably the MDA III; the keyboards are almost identical.) (Thanks, Robert!)
