It appears that Vodafone has let out the fact that it plans to make the new HTC Magic available to its customers in the U.K. next month, in April.  It isn’t providing a set date or even pricing... information yet, though.

Interested folks can register to be notified of the Magic’s availability on the Vodafone website.

No word yet as to when other Vodafone markets will be able...

According to French site SVMlemag.fr, Orange France has just confirmed that it will begin offering the HTC Dream starting... tomorrow.  This will mark the first time that the device has been sold by a carrier other than T-Mobile, which markets it as the T-Mobile G1.

It appears that the Dream will be offered with a...

Now before you get all in a tizzy about the ramifications of the Magic showing up on the FCC site w/o support for T-Mobile USA, bear in mind that it is dead common for foreign variants of U.S. bound... devices to be tested by the FCC even though they won’t ever be sold here.

This doesn’t mean, necessarily, that T-Mobile won’t be getting the Magic (G2), or that AT&T will...

As I am sure you are aware, Android Authority has been reporting live from the MWC in Barcelona. Unfortunately, it is impossible to be in more than one place at the same time and we regrettably missed... a presentation from Vic Gundotra, Vice President of Engineering at Google. However, thanks to YouTube (video below) we can bring you the details nonetheless.

In the presentation, Vic Gundotra dem...

T-Mobile G1 / HTC Dream

Earlier today HTC announced that the HTC Dream, the device known as the T-Mobile G1 in many parts of the world, would soon be available to SingTel... and Optus customers in Singapore and Australia, respectively.

While HTC did not announce an availability date or pricing for the SingTel launch, it said that the phone will be available to Optus c...

HTC Sapphire / T-Mobile G2

No, not my own hands-on impressions on the HTC Sapphire, sadly, but those of somebody I trust.  I’ll not go into details, in order to... protect her identity, but let’s just say that it makes perfect sense that she would have access to this phone.

Bear in mind that these comments are about a pre-production device, and much...

According to an official statement passed through T-Mobile‘s forums admin, Will:

According to the Android team, “Cupcake,” which is the code name for an Android software build,... is still a work in progress that is considered to be a development branch and not for general availability.

We will update you as T-Mobile G1 software updates are made available to T-Mobile custom...

According to that “news” site we love to hate, DigiTimes, some anonymous sources from Taiwan are claiming that HTC’s Sapphire, the phone thought to be the G2, will be launched in May.

If... true this would mean that we won’t be seeing it next month at the Mobile World Congress show, which would be quite a letdown.  I still believe (hope?) that we’ll see it in Barcelona next month, but I...

HTC Sapphire / T-Mobile G2?

The guys over at Gizmodo have scored what appear to be the first live pics of the yet-to-be-announced HTC Sapphire, the device that is likely... to be sold as the T-Mobile G2.

The Sapphire is slimmer than the Dream/G1 due largely to the lack of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.  Otherwise, the devices look somewhat similar, except that the Sa...

Telstra executives quoted by SmartHouse.com.au, the next Android powered smartphone from HTC will be even better than the Palm Pre, which those executives were briefed on at the 2009 CES show in Las... Vegas.

SmartHouse attributes the following quote to the Telstra folks:

We have seen both and we believe that the new HTC phone will be a real competitor to the iPhone and the Pre which a...
