Vodafone stocks budget HTC One flagship and Microsoft Lumia 640 duo

Goes after light users with Internet savvy smartphones

Vodafone is adding three 4G smartphones to its introductory plans in an effort to drive Internet traffic on its network.

The HTC One M8s and Microsoft’s Lumia 640XL go on sale today, while the Lumia 640 will be stocked later this month.

The One M8s is identical to HTC’s former flagship on the outside; it’s the Internal hardware that separates the two smartphones.

Changes include a Snapdragon 615 processor, which combines a 1GHz quad-core CPU with another 1.7GHz quad-core CPU, a larger 2840 milliamp-hour battery and a higher resolution 13 megapixel rear camera.

Joining the One M8s are the first two smartphones to don Microsoft’s branding, the Lumia 640 and 640XL.

These smartphones run on Windows Phone 8.1 and will be upgraded to Windows 10 for phones when it is released later this year.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
