upcoming HTC Magic
is an Google Android-powered
smartphone with a focus on its design and command attention with its advanced
list of capabilities. Running the latest Android version code-named Cupcake, the
HTC Magic provides the well known Google suite of services like GMail, Google
Search and Google Maps (including Latitude) as well as a state-of-the-art web
browser and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA
at 900/2100 MHz, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS. Powered by a Qualcomm MSM7201a
CPU at 528 MHz, the device is backed-up by 512 MB ROM and 192 MB RAM which can
be expanded with microSD cards.
The autofocus camera supports 3.2 megapixel and the device also features a G-sensor
as well as a digital compass which is, for instance, used in Google Maps' Street View.
Unlike the hardware version which was on show at the Mobile World Congress in
Barcelona, the device above features the latest, and in Barcelona announced,
hardware design with a slightly different button layout and an extra Search
button which is supported across all preinstalled Google applications.
Furthermore the button-size was slightly increased and reshaped which makes them
easier to use.
Depending on the country, the Vodafone HTC Magic will be either available in
stylish piano-black or glossy-white.
