Carphone Warehouse in the UK have announced Talkmobile, a new mobile phone service, which will run through Vodafone’s network.

If a week is a long time in politics, then a year is whole new era in the cell phone world, as it is only “a year ago Vodafone said Carphone would no longer be able to sell its mobile phone contracts.” Apparantly that will still be the case:

Carphone Warehouse will continue not to sell Vodafone’s mobile phone contracts.

If that wasn’t weird enough, the new service will be based around a nine month contract, and as with their other services, Fresh and TalkTalk Mobile, which operate through T-Mobile’s network, it works by renting excess nrtwork capacity.

Carphone is the UK’s largest mobile phone retailer.
