We're under the spell of the HTC Magic, and it mysteriously appeared at Crave towers this morning in a puff of smoke and a shower of glitter. But is this glossy white beauty The Prestige or just some rubbish three-card monte?
No one knows the wonderful world of witches and wizards better than the brood in that kiddy Satanism manual, Harry Potter, and we were lucky enough to get the teen cast of the films in to look behind the Magic curtains -- or at least, some very talented impersonators. You may have read that Harry and his Scooby gang are being digitally aged in this summer's film to play themselves as adults. We're keeping it real instead with some lovely paper wands.
First there's the boy wizard himself. Just because he has some wonky face scar, he thinks he's all that, so he's desperate to get on the Web and check out his Facebook and Twitter.
Although the Magic is only the second phone with the Android operating system, there are already plenty of apps available for booking the face and spacing the my. Unsurprisingly for a Google phone, Web browsing is one of the Magic's strengths, and we liked the user interface once we got used to using the function buttons for things like going back and opening the menu, while going to the touchscreen for things like zooming.
