Compare 533 Catwalk Lady Deals

The Vodafone 533 Catwalk Lady, designed by Berlin-based artist Tomek Sadurski, is a lightweight (90g), user-friendly, entry-level, slide mobile with a surprisingly wide range of features for such a small (98.5 x 46.2 x 14.7 mm) phone.

There is more than a touch of fun about the Lady - it comes in a crystallised casing and, like others in the Vodafone Catwalk stable, focuses on no-frills, budget functions. For instance, its 2-inch TFT display supports up to 256,000 colours with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. The 1.3 mega pixel camera enables you to click pictures at 1280 x 1024 pixels resolution and capture basic videos.

There is an MP3 music player and stereo FM radio with RDS: it automatically selects the strongest signal available for the station you want to listen to, so you don't have to re-tune your radio as you drive around and it gives travel announcements and on-screen station information.

Manufactured by Sagem, the 533 is a tri-band phone, suitable for the international traveller, while for data sharing, Vodafone has included Bluetooth for short-range wireless data transfer between compatible devices (PCs, laptops, other mobiles). The internet is accessible though with no EDGE or other faster technologies - via a WAP 2.0 and X-HTML (Openwave 7.2.7) browsers.

The internal 8 MB memory is tiny, but a microSD card slot allows expansion up to 4 GB. Battery life is rated at 2.5 hours talk time and 250 hours on standby from a full charge.
