One of the most exciting mobile phone platform Google’s Android will make an entry into the Indian markets with the launch of HTC Magic by Indian telecom operator Bharti Airtel. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 29,900. The price is certainly on the higher range which is bound to shoo away the prospective customers.
One thing to celebrate however is that the HTC Magic will not be locked with the operator which means owners will have the freedom to choose their network operator and still use the phone. Apple iPhone which is available in India through Vodafone India and Bharti Airtel sells the locked down versions.
Android’s HTC Magic is an ugly phone and its only claim to fame being the first Google’s Android powered phone. The frenzy with Android phones have not reached the proportions that Apple has achieved with iPhone.
The HTC Magic does boast of some nice features such as Microsoft Exchange server synchronisation for email, calendar and contacts, Smart Dialer with on screen touch keyboard and a 3.2 mega-pixel camera. A data download of 100 MB per month for a period of six months will be provided to all the Airtel customers who buy HTC Magic. I don’t know about others but it is certainly not tempting enough to me.
