Looks like Cingular customers
aren't the only ones expected to get an HTC windfall this summer; according to The Unwired, come July and August it appears that the Hermes
and Star Trek
will be launched on German Vodafone as the Vodafone VPA Compact III and Qtek 8500, respectively. Apparently the VPA Compact III will set you back as much as €900 ($1,150 US) without contract, or €409 ($522 US) with a two-year, whereas the 8500 will go for €600 ($766 US) and €170 ($217 US) the same ways -- something tells us they want their customers to snag these subsidized.
