Another day at GSMA winds to a close, and even though there aren't as many new devices, we did get a few important announcements.

The most exciting announcement of the day was probably about the HTC Magic , Vodafone's Android-based smartphone. It doesn't have the slide-out QWERTY keyboard of the T-Mobile G1, but it does look quite sleek. Speaking of Vodafone, we also read news of a GSM Palm Pre that may be slated for Vodafone in the near future, but unfortunately Palm's lips are sealed .

As for other manufacturers, LG announced another handset, dubbed the LG GD900, which the company says is the world's first transparent design phone. To go along with that is the LG HBM-M580 Bluetooth headset, which is just as clear and transparent. Motorola on the other hand, has almost no presence at GSMA save for the Z6w , the W161, and the W181 .
