HTC Magic Gets Sense UI, Android 2.0 Eclair Phones In The Works

By 07:19 Fri, 09 Jul 2021 Comments

HTC Magic owners have been wondering if they will acquire a piece of the Sense UI action. The ones in Taiwan just got their respond - click download, follow the instructions and enjoy. This update is currently for Chunghwa Telecom only, whether it will be available to the rest of the world is still uncertain (but we would guess it will).

Owners of branded Magic phones might be out of luck though - it depends on the carrier to create this update available to its users. "With Google" phones might also be out of the picture. Licensing restriction and other evil legalese acquire in the way of the update, otherwise the hardware should be able to handle it.

We say "should" becautilize user reports recommdiscontinue that the HTC Magic version with 192Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) has some problems with it. The one with 288Mega Bytes (MB) though is certainly capable of getting another step closer to the Hero's capabilities.

Here's something fascinating we stumbled upon - HTC Magic in Brazil comes with Sense UI out of the box. It turns out that some people are more equal than others after all.

While we're on the subject of HTC and Android, the Taiwanese company has confirmed that they are working on an Android 2.0 phone, even if Google haven't announced it yet. There's the update question again - will existing phones be updateable to v2.0 and if yes, which ones? The G1 is a lost cautilize but the Acer Liquid and Samsung I5700 Galaxy Spica have beefy CPUs, so they seem likely candidates (though Spica is low on RAM, which might be a problem).
