It’s phone season

Rogers
has announced

availability of the HTC Dream and HTC Magic phones, both running Google’s Android OS, which is not dissimilar to the iPhone’s OS.

The major concern with the previous Android phone, the G1, was the battery life.
It would last an hour.
Apparently this is no longer such an issue.
According to
ZDNet Asia:

Inevitably the connected nature of many of the HTC Magic’s applications means that you’ll push the battery pretty hard. The quoted life is up to 7.5 hours of talk and 420 hours on standby. We found we needed to charge the battery every day at first, but after the initial burst of heavy use this settled down to a couple of days between charges.

The phones cost the same – $150 – and Rogers offers a $45/month, 500 MB data plan.
Quite a bit less data than the 6 GB plan early iPhone users are currently enjoying.

Another phone on the horizon is the
Nokia N97.

    Nomia and iPhones are the ones to beat. This unit is definitely a top contenter but sad to say not there yet, needs to improve a bit more. Imagine a phone that battery can last for just an hour?

    The HTC Hero looks very cool. I love the Sense UI.

    Windows Mobile is a dead OS as far as I am concerned.

    The iPhone as the app store behind it. I don't see anyone matching Apple anytime soon.
