This won’t really matter to many people, but small U.S. carrier Cellular South announced today that it is going to offer an Android based smartphone to its customers this year. Details are non-existant at this…
It was reported a few days ago that Rogers would be allowing HTC Dream owners the chance to upgrade to an HTC Magic due to the fact that the Dream would not get an OS update past it’s current iteration of 1.5. This was great news but the details were scarce at the time and there was uncertainty in the terms. It is now being reported that the offer does include a free upgrade, but with a small catch. Customers who opt for the upgrade will automatically have their contract renewed for the Canadian standard of 3 years, which turns out to be about a 7 month extension for most Dream owners. Hit the jump for the complete terms and conditions of this offer as well as a look at the key features customers can expect when they upgrade from 1.5 to 2.1.
Exact terms and conditions are as follows:
It has also been confirmed by a Rogers customer who has already gone through the upgrade process that Rogers will allow customers to keep their HTC Dream. For all of you on the fence about whether the lack of a physical keyboard is worth the upgrade to 2.1, here is a list of key features that are included in Android 1.6 to 2.1 that Dream users are currently and will be missing out on:
If you plan to upgrade let us know how your experience goes with the Rogers customer service team and enjoy the new features that will be upon you soon!
