The touchscreen mobile from HTC features the Android mobile platform, opening up the way to popular Google TM services.

HTC Magic is the first mobile from Swisscom to feature the Android platform. It not only provides simple access to practical Google services such as Google web search, Google MapsTM and GMailTM, but also lets you personalise the device with various applications that can be downloaded from the Android Market.

Google Search can be opened from the device's startpage, and a touch of a button opens up all other popular Google services. E-mails, calendar and contacts are automatically synchronised with the personal GMail account no matter whether the entries were made from a computer or the mobile. Google TalkTM features instant messaging and Google Maps brings route planners, city maps and much more to the GPS-enabled HTC Magic.
