All I can say is... Hmmm, not much. In the last few months Vodafone New Zealand has been in a transformation cycle, and what I know is that's been really hard to get to try some of their new smart devices.
While I have met with two people showing me new mobile devices, I could not get any for a review - not even the ones already in stores nationwide.
Take for example the i-mate Smartflip. It's been in stores for a while now, and I asked, begged, implored for a review unit, with no luck so far. Then there is the i-mate JasJAM, the i-mate SP6 (pictured) and the Palm Treo 750v. I've seen these devices, but so far I have had no luck in arranging any for review.
Then check the article on Dominion Post with myself showing off a tablet PC connected to the Vodafone HSDPA. I know some IT jounalists (at least one person from Computerworld and another from the Dominion Post) did not get a chance to review the new service before launch. I only got to try the HSDPA network thanks to a friend who arranged me a Sierra Wireless card to use.
What's up at Vodafone these days?
UPDATE: To be fair, Vodafone is not the only one. HP does the same. I don't even bother asking HP anymore, and I simply ignore them.
