According to the Vodafone UK website, the HTC Tatoo will be coming to the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish sometime in October. As I am sure you are aware, the Tatoo is quite similar to the other HTC Android offerings, sporting HSDPA and a 3.2 megapixel camera. It was first announced earlier this month and will also pack a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, and a 2.8’’ resistive touch-screen display. Vodafone’s own website state that it will offer a 3.2’’ display, which is probably a typo as this is also the same spec as the camera. Here…

In an interesting turn of events, Vodafone New Zealand appear to have pulled the HTC Magic ‘with Google’ from their website. The omission was first spotted by blogger Ben Gracewood, who states in no uncertain terms “Vodafone NZ has completely removed the HTC Magic from sale in New Zealand. They’ve removed all mention of it from their website, and removed existing stock from store shelves.” According to the New Zealand Herald, recent calls to Vodafone about the HTC Magic elicited a response along the lines of ‘the phone can be bought for $1099 NZD, but there are none in stock…

MobileBurn’s Russell Jefferies has a review of the HTC Magic for Vodafone up on our sister-site, MobileBurn.com.  He comes away very impressed with the device, and Android, overall, but has a few complaints. For starters, the battery life of the Magic is still so poor as to demand a daily recharge, just as was the case with the G1.  He’s also not super impressed with the camera at times, and laments the lack of a 3.5mm headphone port and full Bluetooth profile support. On the up side, though, he loves the UI, the capacitive touchscreen display, and the GPS functionality. …

A day after it was promised, the HTC Magic limped into Vodafone stores across the UK this Saturday, the 2nd of May. Most stores had not even updated their shop fronts with any HTC Magic advertisements or general goodies by 11am. Only one of the three stores in Oxford’s busy city centre had updated their awnings to replace the small HTC Magic logo with an equally small, “it’s here” sign. The price plans are somewhat steep compared to online, but it is also worth noting that both online and in store prices now exclude the 12 month price plan options….

Vodafone UK not shipping Magic just yet

So we took a walk down to Vodafone UK’s self-proclaimed busiest branch that “sells the most phones” this morning; Cornmarket Street, Oxford. As a burgeoning dual University town, it is clear why this Vodafone store could be the number one selling store in the UK. Their support staff are certainly up to par. However, despite the assurances from Vodafone in London, and the in-store staff when we checked with them yesterday, the HTC Magic is no where to be seen. The small ‘HTC Magic with Google is coming” notice remains in the window front. Apparently, they did not receive stock…

According to a story posted by TechRadar, Vodafone’s Rachel Williams noted that the network might put out future Android based devices that lack the common Google services that we’ve all come to expect from Android. Speaking to TechRadar, Rachel Williams from Vodafone highlighted the fact that while the HTC Magic contains all the Google features we’ve come to expect tightly integrated, like Google Mail, future offerings might be more of a ‘basic’ package, where networks will want to put their own clients on there instead. This sounds like an attempt to simplify the platform into more of a feature phone…

Today we took a trip into Soho, London, UK, to visit Vodafone’s invite only launch for the HTC Magic. The private members club was a fitting venue for the UK launch of one of the most highly anticipated phones of the summer. Although somewhat hard to find, the venue provided an intimate spot for us to have a face to face with Vodafone about the HTC Magic, Vodafone’s decision to get involved with Android and their plans for the future. Here’s what we learnt. First, a few quick important points. If you want to grab yourself a Magic and you…

This was a bit unexpected.  Vodafone Spain has a countdown page on its website touting the fact that it will start offering the HTC Magic Android powered smartphone to its customers later today – at 11pm Spain time, best we can tell. This beats out Vodafone UK by a few days, since the British will have to wait until May 5th. Prices range from at 21 EUR monthly with a 199 EUR purchase price to 62 EUR monthly with a 19 EUR purchase price.  You can see a full chart on this Spanish site.  If anybody can clarify what “Nuevas…
