HTC Magic for Vodafone

HTC's Magic smartphone, only the second device to be based on Google's Android platform, is now available for pre-order through Vodafone UK. The phone should ship on May 5th, and can be had for free when signing up for a subscription worth 30 per month. A 5 monthly discount applies to online purchases. Other Vodafone divisions are also expected to carry the phone soon, such as Vodafone Italy.

The design of the Magic revolves around a 3.2-inch touchscreen, as well as GPS navigation, HSDPA (3G) broadband and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The phone should also mark the debut of the Android 1.5 firmware, with support for functions such as tilt controls, software keyboards, video recording and stereo Bluetooth. An American version of the Magic, with a five-megapixel camera, is expected be announced as the T-Mobile G2 at an event on April 21st.
