Forget the G2, meet the HTC Magic
Yesterday’s information has turned out to be true – G1 is to have an official successor, named HTC Magic. Similarly to its predecessor, the Magic will run the Android operating system. The device will be powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 192 MB of RAM, 512 MB of ROM and will utilize a large 3.2-inch TFT touch-sensitive screen with resolution of 320x480 pixels. In addition, it will now sport a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and, in contrast to the G1, will be able to capture video straight out of the box. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, microSD card slot, G-sensor (accelerometer) and a digital compass. It will also feature a variety of e-mail options like Google Mail, POP3, IMAP, along with Google Talk for instant messaging.

The HTC Magic will be a quad-band GSM (859/900/1800/1900) and a dual-band 3G (900/2100) device and will be available with Vodafone in Europe. However, details about release dates and pricing are still missing.

I still don't like the design of the buttons on the front. =[ Totally ruins it for me.

Gotta say it looks a lot better than the G1. I can't stand the look of the G1. Doesn't really matter though unless it comes to VZW cuz I'm not leaving. Tempting...but no.
