Second 'Google phone' is unveiled
A new phone based on Google's operating system Android has been unveiled by Vodafone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The touchscreen HTC Magic will feature a 3.2 Megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, and GPS, but no slide-out keyboard.
The first "Google phone", called the G1, was launched in September by HTC and is exclusive to T-mobile.
The Magic will feature new Android firmware, known as "Cupcake", with changes based on G1 user suggestions.
The Magic will go on sale to Vodafone customers in the UK, Germany, Spain and France, and non-exclusively in Italy.
Android phone users will be able to access the Android Market, a storefront for applications that already boasts 800 offerings.
That number that is sure to grow with more Android handsets on the market.
The Congress was expected to see the launch of a number of Android-based phones from several manufacturers, but the Magic is as yet the only confirmed release.
