For those Android lovers who were waiting for Vodafone to release the HTC Magic in the UK this month, there apparently is some bad news. According to Pocket-lint, an issue with a late hardware change has forced the manufacturer to push the launch back to May. While the carrier's own web page still shows delivery scheduled for this month, a call to their sales center comes back with a release date of May 1st. HTC has also released a statement, saying, "We are delighted with the interest that the HTC Magic has receivedsince its launch with Vodafone at Mobile World Congress 2009. We areconfident that Vodafone’s customers will be delighted with the HTCMagic in spite of a short delay due to a last minute hardware
change". With the Magic on the sidelines for at least another month, could another Android powered device pull off an end run to be the second handset with the Google open source OS? Wonder what is happening to the Kogan Agora these days.
