Straight from the Horse’s mouth, this one. On Vodafone AU’s Facebook Page they have left a comment stating that the HTC Magic is indeed an “End of life” device and is being phased out, with “Several new Android devices” on the way in. This coincides nicely with a HTC Media Event in Sydney next week, HTC Legend anyone?

It should also see the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S & Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro (longest device name ever?), as we reported not all that long ago.

Cheers Brent!

it’s official – HTC Legend will be released free on the $49 cap on Vodafone as of 3rd June – no dates for 3 yet…

personally I think that’s a bit steep considering the specs on that phone – they may end up dropping the price, like Optus did with their new Motorolas – but then again, the even higher pricing on the X10 has set a benchmark they can use to help justify it

hopefully this doesn’t mean the i9000 will be even more expensive!

Not sure if you noticed but the Magic is now out of stock on the Vodafone Store website.

I recently visited VF store to check out the HTC Magic. The sales person informed me that a rep had not long been around with the HTC Legend. Fuelling the rumours?

Buzz Moody

Ooo excellent news. We know the legend is coming, so its no longer rumour. It’s now just the time and date, which should be revealed at the HTC Media Event

Do you think the Galaxy S could turn up so quickly?

I wouldn’t think so. They were only just started people looking at them at Google I/O

yeh i was the one that submitted the news, i meant something from HTC

Buzz Moody
Valued Guest

Oh right, well I was told by them they weren’t going to get Android smartphones when I asked them AGES ago about the HTC Hero. So who knows.

Dave

Yeh i went in about a week before i found out about the X10 being released on Virgin and spoke to the manager of my local Virgin store who assured me they would not be getting any android phones because they didn’t have the ability to support them… BABBOOMM 5 days later X10!

I am really hoping that the Legend also comes to 3 along with Vodafone. Would people say the chances are good if it comes to one it will to the other?

Buzz Moody
Valued Guest

It may come to both, but Vodafone are the only ones who have said anything about it.

Ben Williams
Ausdroid Reader

Thanks, hoping that it does come to both VHA brands. Nearly getting in desperate need of a new handset and not looking at changing carriers, unfortunately cannot afford an outright purchase either. On 3 that is a problem when I only really want an HTC Android phone at the moment, even an announcement of some sort would be great.

Hey Buzz. Do you have an email or anything from Vodafone when they mentioned the HTC Legend

Buzz Moody
Valued Guest

I have friends & contacts in Vodafone that contacted me about the Legend, it’s a 3 month exclusive on Vodafone. They can price it how they want, but free on the $49/mo plan is pretty reasonable.

If its free on a $49 contract that would be awesome. Just would add the 2GB data pack and it would be sweet
