After posting news that Rogers has rebranded the HTC Magic as the Magic+, I was promptly contacted by a rep at Rogers giving me a little insight on their plans with the ‘new’ device. Turns out they are planning an upgrade to version 2.1 of Android by ‘mid-year’. After some brief prodding I was unable to obtain any other details, but I think we can assume it’ll bring most, if not all of the Android 2.0 goodness we’d expect to see. Sense UI will no doubt be part of the package, which, for my money, is far and away the best way to experience Android.
I’ll keep checking in with Rogers regarding the upgrade for the Magic+, so hold tight. One of these days it’d be nice to have some release details for the upgrade to Android 2.1… ‘Mid-Year’ is a little too vague for my liking.
Stay tuned for more.
