As expected, Vodafone has begun taking pre-orders for the HTC Magic. The good news here is that those who pre-order the Magic should have it in hand by May 5. Additionally, and perhaps a little more exciting is that it is available for free. Of course, in order to get it for free you will need to choose a calling plan of £30 (or higher) a month.
Hopefully we can see an announcement sometime soon for the Magic here in the US. Of course, judging from the $179 price tag of the G1, it is pretty safe to say that we will never see the same price that Vodafone is offering.
