It's listed as "coming soon" for the moment, but in some brave, exciting future we all share, Samsung's C6625 Valencia will be gracing Vodafone as the aptly-named C6625v. It's not going to get passers-by to swoon, we're guessing, but the C6625v hangs tough with HSDPA, a totally usable QWERTY keyboard, and an interesting custom Windows Mobile Standard skin that may or may not have survived in its transition to a carrier-branded device (from the looks of the screen shot here, we're not hopeful). Best part is that we can virtually guarantee it'll be free on a reasonable contract, so this could end up being a good buy for frugal WinMo fanatics whenever it gets around to launching.
