Launched in the spring of 2009, the HTC Magic might soon get a successor that features a full QWERTY keyboard.
We don’t have any photo of the new smartphone, but there’s a user agent profile over at HTC, which mentions the existence of a QWERTY keyboard for the Magic.
We know that Google plans to launch more phones under the Nexus brand, and at least one of them will have a physical keyboard. Sure, that’s probably the high-end Motorola Shadow, but if Google wants to introduce a more affordable Nexus, the QWERTY Magic might be an ideal candidate for that.
Sold in more than 1 million units until now, the original HTC Magic features a HVGA touchscreen display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, digital compass and a 3.2MP camera. Most of these features will probably be found in the QWERTY Magic, too – assuming that the handset does exist.
