Globe Brings First Android Phone to the Philippines
Globe has brought the first Google Android phone to the Philippines. The HTC Magic is now available at the SM Megamall Globe Business Center. The HTC Magic is a feature-packed entertainment and communication device that makes use of the Android software platform for mobile devices initially developed by Google.
This new HSDPA (3.5G) HTC Magic phone allows instant access to the Google search and seamless email synchronization. The HTC Magic has a 3.2-inch TFT-LCD flat touch-sensitive screen with HVGA resolution for a wide display and a 3.2 megapixel color camera with auto focus to capture video and still pictures.
It also has an onscreen versatile keyboard with predictive text, an accelerometer for auto-rotate, handwriting recognition, and a track ball. It comes with a Smart Dialer that allows users to call in whatever way they want, either dialing the phone number or the first few letters of the name.
Other features of the phone include easy viewing of PDF files and Microsoft Word and Excel documents, and support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync with push email as well as calendar and contact synchronization.
HTC Magic is free at GPlan or GFlex 7000 in Megamall Globe Telecom Business Center (4/F Cyberzone, Building B). You can also log on to www.globe.com.ph for more details.
