The much-anticipated HTC Magic is finally released today (May 1st), after UK network carrier Vodafone brought forward the launch of its flagship phone.
Vodafone is offering the Android powered-touchscreen smartphone for free from £30 per month on a 24-month contract. Alternatively, the cheapest 18-month contract is priced at £35 per month.
Both deals entitle buyers to 600 minutes of calls per month, as well as unlimited text messages and unlimited mobile internet and web usage.
The HTC Magic is the second handset running on Google’s operating system to be released after the one million-selling T-Mobile G1 hit retailers late last year.
Owners of HTC's phone are able to change its functionality by downloading applications from the Android Market, where they can choose from hundreds of different paid-for and free apps.
HTC’s smartphone also includes built-in Google applications, such as GoogleMaps and YouTube, a 3.2 megapixel camera, HSDPA support for fast downloads, an accelerometer and a media player.
