Non-Google Branded HTC Magic to Offer Outlook Sync and More

htc_magicThe HTC Magic being sold in Singapore and other parts of Asia will have a few noticeable differences from the handsets we’ve seen released elsewhere.  It’s a doozy too – native Outlook support.  Have you ever noticed how Android handsets show “with Google” on the back of them?  That’s a Google-branded device.  There are also noon-Google, or HTC-branded handsets that have a little more.

The HTC Magic… provides the Google suite of services like Gmail, Search, YouTube and Maps geared up for use wherever your life leads you. Further enhanced with Outlook® synchronization, Smart Dialer, and an onscreen keyboard with predictive text, the HTC Magic is a true entertainment and communication powerhouse. – HTC

Michael Oryl of Mobile Burn/Android Authority tells us today that they were able to confirm this with Eric Lin of HTC who adds:

The Magic being sold in most of Asia is not a Google experience phone so we have started to put some of the HTC special sauce into Android. That Magic has Exchange support, a much more responsive and full featured camera application, a custom dialer application with smart dial and additional widgets as well.
