HTC Magic Android Phone

HTC Magic is really more than a powerful phone pack with many features. It is definitely much better than my first Sony Ericsson W910i. W910i is also packed with a lot of features and HTC Magic is able to match it. But HTC Magic can do much more than what W910i is not able to. HTC Magic allowed me to surf web pages just I like on my computer. The W910i web browser may crash if I surf web pages with lots of images or graphics.

The Phone Book in HTC Magic allows me unlimited entry while the rest of phone will limit me to 1000 contacts. Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate is another great function that I like on HTC Magic. It allowed me to view web pages better just by rotating the screen. The HSDPA also allowed me to surf websites and download data much faster than my W910i.

The Android Market have many applications that allowed us to maximize the phone capabilities beyond what we can imagine the phone can do. With W910i, I am stuck with the features and applications provided by the manufacturer unless there is a upgrade of firmware with new features. I can now tap into the Android Markets for applications or games to boost my HTC Magic capabilities.

The Weather Channel Application is one of the must have and the most popular downloads. It allowed me to have the latest update of Singapore Weather. It also help me to know about other countries weather before I do my traveling.

Barcode Scanner is another popular Android Application. It will made use of the camera to capture the barcode of the item. This application will find pricing and metadata for anything with the barcode. It can scan QR Code and these are found in business card.
