Vodafone have announced a range of three new exclusive special edition handsets to support the official launch of the new Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team in Valencia this week.

The range of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes features two clamshells from Sharp, the 770SH (3G) and GX29 (2G), and the 3G broadband slider SGH-Z720M from Samsung. The design of the new handsets mirrors the new team identity and car design, featuring a chrome silver cover with highlights in the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team ‘rocket’ red colour.

 The handsets, which offer Vodafone live! consumer services, include video clips and images of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes racing car in the new 2007 livery as well as a sleek menu design, special ring tones and a racing game.

The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes GX29 – a 2G Vodafone live! handset is based on the GX29 clamshell design and the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes 770SH 3G handset features a 1.3 mega pixel camera. The 3G broadband slider Vodafone McLaren Mercedes – SGH-Z720M offers even faster access to multi media services such as mobile TV and full track music downloads, faster download of music and video files and high speed download of emails when the handset is used as a modem for laptops. The handset also features a 3 mega pixel camera with auto focus.
