HTC Magic at Voda Spain

Vodafone Spain today got the edge on its other European counterparts by saying it would launch the HTC Magic early. The carrier's countdown has the phone shipping at midnight Tuesday and will make it the first country to get the handset, which is the second-ever Android phone and the first sold outside of T-Mobile. Unlike the G1, the Magic uses Android 1.5's on-screen keyboard alone for input and uses this to significantly slim down the design.

It should be functionally identical to the stock Magic with a 3.2-megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi all core features on the smartphone. It should cost 12 ($16) when paired with the required unlimited data plan and should come bundled with an 8GB microSDHC card.

Separately, France's SFR has also posted a teaser page for its launch of the Magic, which is due May 6th. The carrier doesn't yet have its own rate plans listed but promises the same 8GB memory card as for Vodafone.
