Move over G1 – the HTC Magic has landed, and it’s every bit the slick, sleek Android smartphone we’ve been secretly wishing for. HTC and Vodafone delivered the Magic over to us this morning, and we’ve promptly unboxed the whole thing on video for your viewing-pleasure.
Of course, since the HTC Magic comes preloaded with Android OS 1.5 “Cupcake”, which we know only a limited number of you have had access to, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to boot up the Magic and take a quick look at its video capture and on-screen keyboard. These are just snapshot looks, remember; we’ll have plenty more video demos with the HTC Magic over the next few days.
First impressions are very positive; the Magic feels much better in the hand than the G1, slim and light, and the 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen is bright and responsive. As ever, we’re open to suggestions about what you’d like to know, so leave your requests in the comments and we’ll try to answer them in our full review. Until then, enjoy the unboxing video!
