No question, HTC's second, and Vodafone's first Google Android-based smartphone - the HTC Magic - is a well looking and feature-rich smartphone, if you are interested in Google Android phones. While the T-Mobile G1 (aka HTC Dream) wasn't a design-beauty at all, the HTC Magic looks much nicer and fresher. Available soon from Vodafone in black and/or white (depending on the country), the smartphone features a Qualcomm MSM7201a CPU at 528 MHz and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA ad 900/2100 MHz, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g and GPS. At a size of 113 x 55 x 13.65 mm, the device weights 118.5 grams (including the battery).

The 3.2" touch-sensitive screen features 320 x 480 HVGA screen resolution and the inbuilt memory of 512 MB of ROM and 192 MB of RAM can be expanded with microSD memory cards. The device features a 3.2 megapixel autofocus main camera on the back but lacks a second front facing video telephony camera on the front.

Last but not least, the device sports a G-sensor, a digital compass and a trackball with Enter button. Also new and slightly different to exhibitions models shown at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is the button layout. The buttons are bigger now and an additional search button was added to the HTC Magician to provide easier and more convenient search within certain applications (browser, contacts, Maps, etc.).

The device photographed above is the black HTC Magic as it will be available in selected Vodafone markets, in addition to the white HTC Magic version. The expected release of the HTC Magic is April this year.
