The HTC Magic, which will be first launched by Vodafone, is out and this morning I had another chance to got my hands on HTC's second Google Android smartphone. While the device is also not featuring the latest button layout but the preproduction layout, it should gives you a good impression how tall and thick the actual device will be.
In my humble opinion, compared to the HTC Dream (aka the T-Mobile G1) the HTC Magic looks way better and mass-market compliant than the G1 which sports a quite yesterday industrial design. Anyway, if you are hunting for an Android smartphone with a hardware keyboard, the HTC Magic isn't your at all:

In any case, Friday this week Vodafone D2 will host a press event in Germany and I hope I can get my hands on the final hardware layout anyway. Stay tuned for updates.

Cheers ~ Arne
