Bad news for those of you with the HTC Magic and Dream on Canada's Rogers network: Looks like you'll be stuck with Android 1.5 for the forseeable future. On HTC's Web site, under "Can I upgrade my Rogers Magic device to Android 1.6, it says ...
"HTC is not currently planning any Android 1.6 upgrades for Rogers Dream or Magic. Android 1.6 was only made available for “Google”-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."
You know what? Android 1.5 is a reliable software platform that delivered a terrific user experience -- in 2008. Upgrades are released for a reason: To get onto devices. Sorry, folks. Best hope for some hacking alternatives.
