HTC Magic launched in India

HTC-androidHTC magic will soon be available in India. Taiwanese handset manufacturer HTC has launched India’s first smartphone that will run on Google’s open source Android operating system.

HTC Magic, popularly called G2 or the second generation Google phone, has Bharti Airtel as its exclusive carrier. The phone is priced at Rs 30,000 approximately. Vodafone might also try its hand in the race. If it happens then the phone will come locked to Bharti Airtel and Vodafone network.

G2 or HTC Magic is the successor to the first Google Phone, G1. The device is a sleeker version of G1 sans keyboard. Even though there aren’t many applications available for android phones as of now, but the market seems to mature fast. But at the price tag of Rs 30,000 i doubt many people would buy it.
