No Donuts For Canadians (Confirmed)
Just as “Android in Canada” put it, get ready for a slap in the face my fellow igloo dwelling, beaver loving friends.
While many Canadians have opted to root their device and use whatever ROM they please, it turn out the long awaited 1.6 “Donut”Â update will not be available to both the Roger’s HTC Dream and Magic devices. According to the HTC Mobile Support website:
Can I upgrade my Rogers Magic device to Android 1.6?
HTC is not currently planning any Android 1.6 upgrades for Rogers Dream or Magic. Android 1.6 was only made available for â€œGoogleâ€-branded devices such as the G1. It is not available for HTC-branded products such as the Dream or Magic, which use Android 1.5. We believe that Android 1.5 is a stable and reliable software platform that delivers a terrific user experience.
While version 1.5 “Cupcake” was stable, it does not include a lot of features required by many popular Android apps. While many will say that the Dream and Magic are fairly old devices, in today’s fast-paced world of technology it is still hard to swallow with the lack of other Android options available to Canadians.
