This isn't news to those of you that have been running Telstra for a while but I'm quite pleased with the new Vodafone theme. It's a nice complement to Zen. It definitely looks best with the original world map background and the overall effect is understated in an elegant way.
Things that I especially like:
- Hot keys work for applications folder when on the main screen (so, for example, Calculator is directly accesible by "U")
- New rotating cog a nice change from the hourglass
- New Tasks graphics a definite improvement
- Red highlighting on lined-gray menus looks great
- Locked screen is cool.
Lastly, with the applications folder, and my new minimalist approach to the 8700 - I've dropped the games like Circle Popper that were just wrecking my trackwheel and I'm hiding unnecessary icons, I have everything visible on the main screen - no scrolling off the bottom.
Since Vodafone Today will apparently borrow greatly from this theme, it should also look very good.

Hmm... the Today screen is looking rather green by comparison with the screen shots that you posted.
(EDIT: The right-side picture under the Browser section of the interactive presentation looks okay.)
