Sascha over at Netbooknews.de was able to get his hands on the recently released HTC Magic and was kind enough to perform what he described as his first unboxing of a smartphone. I cannot help but think, what a phone to begin with.
As you will see from the video, he went with the black version, which appears to be a nice look for the Magic. Otherwise he described the Magic as being small and having a “pretty good” build quality. One complaint that was made came in regards to the fingerprints which are bound to happen with a glossy finish.
Aside from the Magic itself, the rest of the package contained just the necessities. Sascha commented that the handset should come with a small towel to wipe those fingerprints, but no such luck. It did however ship with a USB cable, headset with earbuds and microphone, power adapter and an artificial leather case that was described as feeling “a little cheap.”
