HTC Magic Passes FCC, One Step Closer

It happened.  Just like we hoped it would.  The HTC Magic is officially coming stateside.  No more worrying about whether Vodafone is going to be the only carrier in the world to get this handset.  In reality, nobody really expected them to be the only provider.  It’s just nice to see something more concrete than rumors.

There’s no question now as to who is going to carry this phone.  Look right there at the top, under the earpiece… T-Mobile.  That will likely mean two Android handsets on Big Magenta before anyone else gets their first.  We’re looking right at you Sprint.  Seriously. Android is where it’s at, not Palm.  Anyways…

Here are a couple of specs to go with the pictures:

  • T-Mobile 3G HSDPA/HSUPA
  • WiFi UMA (Hotspot@Home)
  • 5 Megapixel Camera – not the 3.2 that was rumored.

What’s the phone going to be called?  Is it Sapphire?  Will it be HTC Magic?  Our money is on G2.  It’s a natural name for follow up.  We’ve know for quite some time now that they own the domain name right to T-MobileG1.com on through T-MobileG5.com. Further, if ya snoop around in the US Trademark website, you’ll see that T-Mobile filed for trademarks to “G2″  back in October.
