Vodafone New Zealand to release HTC Magic Android mobile phone
The HTC Magic exclusive in New Zealand to Vodafone and Vodafone’s first Android-powered smartphone, will be available to customers in June, through Vodafone’s retail stores and online.

Vodafone's GM of Products, Pricing and Internet, Kursten Shalfoon says the HTC Magic will be a leading handset in their smartphone range.

"The HTC Magic is innovation at its best and comes with Google's Android operating system which offers users simple and easy functionality with some very cool integration with Google's most loved products. Our smartphone range just keeps getting better. It's very exciting to be the first to bring an Android handset to New Zealand and add one of the best mobile internet brands to our line up."

The HTC Magic is a touch screen mobile with an easy to use interface that allows users to personalise the way they use the internet on their mobile, as well as download relevant applications, ringtones and games thanks to direct access to the application-rich Android Market.

The new tablet design includes six hard buttons for navigation, volume control, a call/hang up key, home button, menu button, and quick ‘Search’ key to make using the phone’s menus or searching the internet even quicker. The touch screen includes a responsive QWERTY keyboard which uses predictive text for speed and the ability to cut and paste.

There are plenty of new additions to the latest Android-powered phone, including a fully functional web browser with Google search. The HTC Magic also features stereo Bluetooth for audio, the ability to load pictures to Picasa Web Albums and to record video and upload clips to YouTube.

Available in white and black, the HTC Magic has a 3.2” QVGA touch screen display, with accelerometer to change from portrait to landscape view. The sleek handset also includes a variety of email options such as Gmail, POP3 and IMAP as well as Google Talk for instant messaging. The phone can easily synchronise with Google Calendar and contacts, and it comes with Google Maps with Street View, satellite view and Google Latitude, making it easier to stay in touch with friends.

Other features include 500MB internal memory, with capacity for a 8GB external memory, removable battery and supports Quad-band GSM, dual-band UMTS, HSDPA/HSUPA, Wi-fi, GPS, and a 3.2MP camera capable of video recording and MMS.
