Vodafone and HTC today announced the HTC Magic smartphone, Vodafone's first Android-powered mobile, which will be available in the spring.
The stylish new handset is exclusive to Vodafone in the UK, Spain, Germany and France (SFR) and available on a non-exclusive basis in Italy. Customers can ensure that they are the first to receive information about the HTC Magic's availability, pricing and pre-ordering by registering their interest via their local Vodafone website from today.

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 personalization via the application-rich Android Market. Available in white in the UK, Spain and France, black in Germany and in both colors 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-optimized Webkit browser. It also features the popular Google™ applications, Google Maps™ and Google Search™ as well as favorites like YouTube™. In addition, Android Market allows for quick and easy downloading of games and applications utilizing Vodafone's fast and reliable network.

The HTC Magic initially comes exclusive to Vodafone customers in UK, Spain, Germany and France (SFR) and non-exclusively in Italy. More countries to follow.

Cheers ~ Arne
