Confirmed: Rogers HTC Magic and Dream not getting Android 1.6

If you joined the revolution and got an HTC Magic and Dream from Rogers you are probably wondering when the upgrade is happening to Android 1.6?. Well, it’s not and it’s now confirmed.

According to the HTC website in their upgrade section the question is “Can I upgrade my Rogers Magic device to Android 1.6?”… Owners are already upset (check out our Forum here) as it’s now confirmed:

“HTC is not currently planning any Android 1.6 upgrades for Rogers Dream or Magic. Android 1.6 was only made available for “Google”-branded devices such as the G1. It is not available for HTC-branded products such as the Dream or Magic, which use Android 1.5. We believe that Android 1.5 is a stable and reliable software platform that delivers a terrific user experience.”
