HTC Magic

So, the second "android" phone is out - or will be in April. HTC have announced the "Magic" at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, although strangely on Vodafone's website (yes, it's looking like it's going to be tied to one operator - again - at least to start with), the image is named "HTC_Pioneer".

Anyway, it looks like it's going to be stuffed full of all the latest hi-tech stuff we'd expect of a 2009 smartphone, minus a keyboard, unlike it's older brother the G1 which had a slide out qwerty. Other than specs, which appear fairly comprehensive, there's not much else yet available. The image galler is surprisingly sparse (and poor to look at IMHO). I've fiddled with a G1 in a T-Mobile store, and wasn't overly impressed. At first glance, I'm not overawed by this hardware either. The one I'm still looking forward to is the Palm Pre.
