HTC's second Android phone coming 1 May

Vodafone unveils Magic and 'save a fiver' price plan

Business security measures using SSL

HTC’s second Android-based handset, Magic, will be available from exclusive UK carrier Vodafone on 1 May.

Several Magic launch dates have already been mentioned online, but Vodafone today told Register Hardware that the phone will “definitely” go on sale in UK stores this Friday.

You’ll get the handset for free if you sign up for Vodafone’s £35 ($50/€39) per month tariff, which includes at least 600 minutes of talk time, unlimited texts and all the mobile web you can handle.

However, you’d be wise to pre-order yourself a Magic online before 1 May because Vodafone let slip that it’ll chop £5 off of the monthly tariff price – bringing the cost down to just £30 per month – if you do.

The HTC Magic is available to pre-order online now. ®
