HTC Dream and Magic Rogers

Rogers today bolstered its smartphone efforts by confirming that it would bring Android phones to Canada. The initial launch lineup will include not only the HTC Dream, also known as the T-Mobile G1 in the US, but also the just-launched HTC Magic. The carrier doesn't say whether the phones will be functionally different from their counterparts elsewhere but is teasing a launch for at least one of the devices on June 2nd.

The touchscreen phones primarily differ in profile, with the Dream getting a hidden hardware QWERTY keyboard along with a 3-megapixel camera, HSPA-based 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. The Magic depends on Android 1.5 for a touch-based keyboard, gets a 3.2-megapixel camera and slims down significantly from the Dream. Both have full HTML web browsers, built-in access to several Google web services like Maps and YouTube and a central app store in the Android Market.
