Vodafone 360 phones killed off

It's all over for 360 phones, but software lives on as "suite of services".

Vodafone 360 is dead. Or, at least, phones rocking its dedicated OS are. The network has announced that the Samsung H1 and M1, along with the forthcoming H2, are all being killed off.

The social networking-mad software, however, will continue to live on in 100 handsets, giving you access to dedicated apps, tunes, maps and the chance to integrate contacts from Facebook and Twitter.

In an official statement, Vodafone said, “We have always been clear that Vodafone 360 is about a suite of services, not just about bespoke devices. Our intent was always to provide services across as many handsets as possible on as many platforms.”

However, with similar services already rocking up as native features of mobile operating systems, HTC Sense being just one example, how many punters are really going to check out Vodafone 360?

Have you got a Vodafone 360 phone? Or were you planning on snaffling a Samsung H2, only to have your hopes dashed? Tell us your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter.
