Meh? Feels a little uninspired, especially since the HTC Magic will likely garner most of the attention from those looking for a full-touchscreen Android device. Still, Android certainly needs someone other than HTC backing them up on the hardware front, and a lot of that support will likely come from smaller independent operations that are looking at the OS’ pricetag more than anything else.
