Magic Touch

Dan Jones

6:00 PM -- The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved High Tech Computer Corp. (HTC) (Taiwan: 2498)'s second Android phone, codenamed "Magic," to run on T-Mobile US Inc. 's 3G network in the U.S.

The key difference between the Magic and the current G1 is in the user interface: The "G2" does away with the full slider keyboard in favor of a touch-screen interface.

No word yet on when the device will come out, but the CTIA show could be a good venue for HTC to give more details.

re: Magic Touch

From the WSJ site today -- HP is apparently considering an Android-based netbook.
