HTC Magic is Europe’s G2 phone

The HTC Magic will be the HTC Sapphire/G2′s European twin. Originally seen in a leaked product line and then spotted in spy shots, the Magic will be a Vodafone exclusive. The successor to the T-Mobile G1 sports the expected features of HSPA, WiFi, GPS, and a 3.2 megapixel camera, and likely will have a few other virtues that we outlined previously. There may be a few add-ons to Android that will provide useful features out of the box for Vodafone subscribers. More details are expected to appear soon.

UPDATE:  New specs and photos of the HTC Magic have emerged at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona courtesy of AndroidCommunity.
