HTC Magic Android-Phone Delayed Over “Hardware Change”

The HTC Magic — the new Android-based phone set to follow the T-Mobile G1 — has been delayed due to some sort of “last-minute hardware change,” HTC says.

The Magic was set to launch in the U.K. this month. It’s now being pushed back to May 5. HTC isn’t saying exactly what type of “hardware change” is involved.

The HTC Magic boasts a far sleeker design than its predecessor, featuring a 3.2-inch touchscreen with 320 by 480 resolution and no swivel-out keyboard. It’s also smaller and lighter than the G1.

A U.S. launch date has yet to be set.
