Magic, Vodafone’s first Android-powered HTC cell phone
The 2009 edition of the Mobile World Congress proved itself to be exactly how many of us expected it: a chain of nice surprises coming from all major cell phones manufacturers from all around the world. And HTC Corporation doesn’t make an exception whatsoever.

After we got the chance to see a couple of leaked images of the HTC Magic, branded with another famous name, Vodafone, it seems that the smartphone has been given the official treatment. Magic is the first Android-powered HTC cell phone (ok, smartphone) sold by Vodafone which is expected to attract many customers with its keyboardless design. The lack of a QWERTY keyboard makes it a whole lot simpler and more elegant than the T-Mobile G1, for example.

“Delivering an unbeatable mobile internet experience for our customers is a priority for Vodafone, so we are very excited to be introducing our first Android-powered smartphone in the spring”, says Patrick Chomet, Global Director of Terminals, Vodafone Group. In addition, he said that “following our joining of the Open Handset Alliance, we have worked very closely with HTC to bring this cool new phone to the market. Our customers want to access a wide range of the most attractive mobile devices to help them make the most of their time – the HTC Magic helps meet that need”.

The Android-based HTC cell phone will be sold first in countries like UK, Spain and France (the white version), Germany (the black version) and Italy (in both colors). However, it is expected to become available in other Vodafone markets in the next couple of months.
