Vodafone is part of the new announcement

A new software platform has been launched that may interest those recycling mobile phones for a replacement Samsung device.

The LiMo Foundation announced the release of its second platform that is designed to make the most of the South Korean manufacturer's new joint project with Vodafone.

Built by Samsung and branded with the name of the network, the 360 H1 will be the first to take advantage of a new service that links address books with facilities like Facebook, Windows Live and Google.

The Vodafone 360 H1 will also be equipped with a new user interface that has been described as "the market's sleekest and most sophisticated" for touchscreen devices.

Morgan Gillis, executive director of LiMo Foundation, added the model was able to deliver "an inspiring service" that is reflective of what happens "when a handset platform enables leading operators and vendors to realise their vision".

Vodafone 360 also allows users access to a range of applications for their mobile phones that are accessible via the device itself or their home computer.
