The successor to the T-Mobile G1 Android phone has been announced at the MWC in Spain. The HTC Magic will be released by Vodafone (s vod) and is sleeker and thinner than the original Android phone, the G1, also by HTC. That thinnest is due to the loss of the hardware keyboard which may not sit well with those who love them some QWERTY.
The specs of the Magic do not show any surprises and indicate this is simply a refresh of the G1. HTC has seen fit to retain the proprietary headphone jack, which is just plain silly. The HTC Magic will be exclusive to Vodafone for a while and released in Europe first.
