      #32683 - 02/17/09 03:02 PM

Vodafone and HTC have announced the HTC Magic smartphone, Vodafone's first Android-powered mobile, which will be available in the spring. This T-Mobile G1-like (minus the QWERTY keyboard) Android phone is exclusively to Vodafone in the UK, Spain, Germany and France (SFR) and available on a non-exclusive basis in Italy. More info on the upcoming Android phone:



The introduction of the HTC Magic is the result of a successful relationship between Vodafone and HTC, and Vodafone?s joining, late last year, of the Open Handset Alliance.

A tablet-style device, with a sleek design and unprecedented compactness for a smartphone featuring the Android platform, the HTC Magic enables a superior mobile internet experience, providing broad flexibility for personalisation via the application-rich Android Market. Available in white in the UK, Spain and France, black in Germany and in both colours in Italy, the HTC Magic will be for sale in several other Vodafone markets over the next few months.

Available from free on various price plans, the HTC Magic has a 3.2? QVGA touch screen display and features a trackball and navigational buttons for quick, easy access. The HTC Magic includes a variety of email options such as Google Mail, POP3 and IMAP as well as Google Talk for instant messaging.

The HTC Magic has a variety of powerful mobile internet capabilities beginning with an Android-optimised Webkit browser. It also features the popular Google applications, Google Maps and Google Search as well as favourites like YouTube. In addition, Android Market allows for quick and easy downloading of games and applications utilising Vodafone?s fast and reliable network.

Full details of availability and pricing will be available in the future in local Vodafone markets.
