Vodafone’s online store is offering either the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation XL with a handset charge of $5 a month (down from $10) on its $29, 24-month cap plan (total minimum cost $816). Not the newest phone or the swishest plan, but a good saving if you want a low-cost Android deal and don’t mind the contract. [Vodafone]
Sadly it’s not a shift to Ice Cream Sandwich, but Vodafone is pushing out an over-the-air update for the Desire HD and Cha Cha to shift them to Android 2.3.5 and Sense 3.0, as well as smaller bug fix updates for the Sensation and Salsa, from 4pm today. You’ll get a notification on your device when the update is available. Not a concern if you’ve already shifted to a custom ROM, obviously.
