OS 2.1 upgrade for Rogers HTC Magic currently in testing… “anticipate end of Aug” release

The Rogers HTC Magic was one of the first Android-powered devices to come to Canada and has had a fair share of troubles. It was briefly pulled off the shelves for an urgent 911 fix and then renamed the Magic+. Now there’s some good news for owners as an upgrade to 2.1 is in the works.

On Twitter, RogersMary stated that “Okay Magic fans, I have an update for you! Rogers has received a draft OS 2.1 Magic upgrade from HTC”. But this does not mean that it’s coming soon… We’re in process of testing. No solid release date as that depends on Google’s approval as well. We anticipate end of Aug but plz stay tuned”.

Progress… but by the time this gets officially released so will OS 2.2.
