HTC Magic gets Previewed


As we know, HTC’s Magic G2 will be available from Vodafone. The Magic is the second Android phone from HTC after the G1. Before the phone is launched, mobile-review has previewed the phone, the editor comments the phone as a likable phone.

The HTC Magic G2 is equipped with a Qualcomm MSM7201a 528 MHz processor, 512MB ROM and 192MB RAM. It has a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 3.2 Megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and a microSD card slot.


* It picks up HTC’s Android-based portfolio where the G1 left off, although this time around it doesn’t have a QWERTY keyboard and boasts a more pocketable casing.
* Spec-wise, the Magic is very similar to the HTC Touch Diamond, down to its camera resolution, although it packs in a different display and OS, as well as some other features (for example, it doesn’t have an ambient light sensor, but sports an e-compass).
* The phone downloads new applications in exactly the same fashion as the Apple iPhone, however most apps found in Android Market are free.
* HTC still keep faith in their ExtUSB socket
* The Magic’s trackball is next to useless here – the only applications where it doesn’t seem out of place are Google Maps and web browser.
* Google Android is a very well laid out OS, and quite speedy at that.

The HTC Magic will appeal both to ordinary users who don’t want to spend much time in their phone’s settings menu and tech-savvy consumers. What’s more, it’s very easy to setup, and it won’t take you longer than 10 minutes to get most of its features to work (contact and mail synch, for example). Contrary to the popular belief that Google Android still has got a long way to go, the HTC Magic seemed like a decent and user-friendly phone. All in all, it’s worth looking forward to.
