BARCELONA -- The only Googlephone to appear at the Mobile World Congress couldn't even be bothered to turn up in person. HTC and Vodafone made a joint announcement Tuesday of their forthcoming Android-based Magic, formerly known as the G2, but all they provided were tantalizing specs and a few images.

The handset is notable for a few reasons. First, it looks a lot nicer than the G1 from T-Mobile. Second, the Magic will be almost completely exclusive to Vodafone (the Magic will be on Vodafone in the UK, Spain, Germany and France; and non-exclusively on Vodafone in Italy). And third, it's the first Android phone without a keyboard.

The Magic will be touchscreen-only. There is still a little navi-nipple like the G1, but the hard QWERTY keyboard on the T-Mobile G1 is gone, leaving only a 3.2-inch, 320x240-pixel screen. The phone also has a 3.2 MP camera, Wi-Fi and GPS.

nice pics in the article...
