HTC Dream and HTC Magic announced by Rogers for Canada

Canada’s been devoid of Android handsets until now, but no more – Rogers Wireless has officially announced the upcoming availability of not one, but two Android smartphones.

We’re talking about the HTC Dream (also known as T-Mobile G1) and the HTC Magic (also known as MyTouch 3G).

Both devices will be exclusively sold by Rogers starting June 2, 2009 – meaning in 25 days from now.

As you probably already know, the Dream is the world’s first Android phone, while the Magic is the second one. The main difference between them (apart from the different design) is that the Dream has a hardware QWERTY keyboard, while the Magic doesn’t – but it will come with Android 1.5, which features a virtual QWERTY keypad.


Rogers said nothing about the prices of its new phones – let’s hope they’ll not be on the hefty side.
