After months of drought, we're finally seeing the Google Android news trickle in--the debut of the Samsung I7500, the upcoming Android 1.5 (aka Cupcake) release, and the launch of the HTC Magic. Unfortunately, for us here in the States, all the action has been overseas, but we can only hope that we're not far behind in getting in on the Android love.

To tide you over, we thought we'd point you to a photo gallery posted by our friends over at ZDNet UK who got a hands-on look at the Vodafone HTC Magic. The hardware is actually a bit different from what we saw at GSMA 2009, and the smartphone is also running Android 1.5, so you can check out pictures of the landscape keyboard, video recording capabilities, and other new features.

See it all here in the HTC Magic and Android 1.5 photo gallery.
