Photos: Hands-on with the HTC Magic Android phone

We spend some quality time with Vodafone's HTC Magic, the Android-based successor to the T-Mobile G1, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

BARCELONA--After waiting and waiting for an Android phone to appear at the Mobile World Congress, Vodafone on Tuesday unveiled the HTC Magic, the successor to the T-Mobile G1 (formerly known as the HTC Dream). Our friends over at Crave UK were lucky enough to get their hands on a prototype.

The Magic does away with the bulky physical keyboard of the G1 in favor of a touch screen. It's also much skinnier and lighter, but HTC still chooses to deny us a handy 3.5mm headphone jack. Why, oh why, must you torment us so?

Check out some of its other features in our gallery below.
