I installed the software for the Magic on my G1 this morning. The RC33 build on it is significantly better than our standard G1 RC33. I'm having trouble with the market though (downloading). Until I get that straightened out, I may switch back (will give up video recording, sending video by MMS, native on screen keyboard and so much more) Either way, the Magic doesn't seem to offer much more than the Dream. Except maybe that it's slimmer and has a better camera. Hmmm... me thinks Cupcake on G1 will offer same thing anyway.
Agree^^ but any word when cupcake is coming to g1? Guess we are lookin at the end of april? Or early may closer to magic release?
I keep hearing mid to late april. I'm not sure how accurate that is though, as I originally heard it was to release early april. By my calendar, it's the 18th already.
On another note, I did finally get a download out of the market on the new ROM - ASTRO. I just re-installed all of the programs from my backup. This phone's just ridiculous now. If you don't mind your phone taking about 3 hours to download a program, i'd suggest doing an ASTRO backup, upgrading like I did, and reinstall everything.
Yeah I saw in http://www.htc.com/ that Vodafone has taken pre-orders for HTC Magic but there isn't any official announcement from them about the exact release date. So I think that May 5 might be a rumour.
