HTC Magic Gets Updated To Froyo

We spend quite a bit of time around here grumbling over the slowness of Android updates, so it’s always good to learn that a phone has made the jump. And in this case it’s a venerable veteran: the HTC Magic, which Vodafone started selling back in June 2009.

Reader James in wrote in to tell us that he’d gotten a welcome Christmas update on his Magic:

Not sure if any of you are using the seemingly forgotten HTC Magic, but I bought it (through Vodafone) about a year ago under the illusion that system updates would be rolled out soon after being released (this was not the case). On Christmas Eve however, i received a very exciting prompt on my phone for a system update, a few hours later and TADA i went from 1.6 to 2.2.1. The changes are many and very very welcome

See, carriers? It can be done! Thanks James!
