According to Omnio, in a newsletter to its affiliates, Vodafone will no longer have the iPhone 4S 32GB, the iPhone 4S 64GB, the grey version of the HTC One X, the grey version of the HTC One V, the Blackberry Curve 8520, and the Vodafone Smart in stock.
With the arrival of the iPhone 5, it’s understandable why Vodafone is getting rid of the 32 and 64GB versions of the iPhone 4S. It’s also understandable why the network operator is still planning to keep the 16GB version in stock, since it will be a good budget iPhone. However, we not sure why the network will no longer have HTC’s high-end smartphones in stock. We’re guessing that the smartphones aren’t selling very well. Although they are only getting rid of the grey versions, this doesn’t look to good on HTC’s part. This doesn’t help the ailing Taiwanese firm at all.
Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) has recently rolled out to the One X. This is another reason why we don’t understand Vodafone no longer stocking up on the handset, since customers are likely to get their hands on a smartphone that runs a more updated version of Android. The latest version of Android is version 4.2.
The HTC One X was the Taiwanese firm’s former flagship, but has now been replaced by the One XL (the 4G version of the One X) and the One X+ (a beefed up version of the former flagship). Vodafone, however, does not offer the two.
No longer stocking up on the One V is another surprise, since it is a budget phone.
Are you surprised Vodafone will no longer be stocking up on the iPhone 4S 32GB or the iPhone 4S 64GB, or are you more baffled the network operator will no longer be stocking up on the grey versions of the HTC One X and the HTC One V? Share your thoughts through a comment on our Facebook page.
