Long live the HTC Magic. For some out there, the HTC Magic may have been your first leap into the Android platform and many are still making use of the device today. Vodafone UK is well aware of that fact and as such, have started pushing out the Android 2.2.1 update for it. As noted on the Vodafone UK forums:
Android 2.2.1 will give customers a number of improvements including: latest Gmail and Android Market clients; ability to save applications directly onto an SD card; support for USB tethering so the phone can be used as a modem; improved support for Active Sync Exchange (email, contacts and calendar sync); enhancements to Bluetooth; and enhancements to the camera. The update also includes the latest Google security patches.
HTC Magic users should be getting the automatic notifications on their devices advising to update although, it is mentioned that it is a gradual roll out so if you're not seeing yet you'll just have to wait a little bit longer. [Vodafone UK via CoolSmartPhone]
