Android Smart Phone Available for Globe Telecom Users


Time to buy some more load from Globe. Surfing the internet is great on the new HTC Magic phone running the Android operating system from Google. Globe makes the new HTC Magic available in the Philippines and it’s free at GPlan or GFlex 7000 in Megamall Globe Telecom Business Center (4/F Cyberzone, Building B).

We have played with some android phones and have loved their user interface and speed. Has anyone tried the HTC Magic? We would love a review of this phone.
