On Tuesday, ZDNet UK was given a preview of the HTC Magic, which will be exclusively carried in the UK by Vodafone.
Taking a look at the handset also provided an opportunity to try out the functionality of version 1.5 — also known as Cupcake — of the Android platform. The second version of the Google-led platform, also rolling out from Tuesday for T-Mobile UK's G1 users, shows significant enhancements over the first, as demonstrated over the following pages.
As shown in the above photograph, the HTC Magic (left) is shorter than the T-Mobile G1, the first Android phone.
The Magic measures 113x55x13.65mm, while its predecessor measures 117.7x55.7x17.1mm. The Magic is also lighter than the G1, at 118.5g with battery to the G1's 158g.
