The HTC Magic (aka myTouch 3G on T-Mobile in the US) will soon be available in Canada via Rogers, but while it is yet to become available in both North American countries, Spaniards have been enjoying it for some time.


So, in an effort to share the love (or frustrating the rest of us), Engadget Spanish has released this hands-on video of the HTC Magic/G2 for everyone to enjoy. Apparently, despite it lacking a physical QWERTY keypad, the user experience is still quite the same with its predecessor, the G1 which will also debut on Rogers next month.

They did, however, find the accelerometer a tad slow and typing while in portrait mode a little difficult due to the smaller size of the keys. Nonetheless, those minor flaws can be a matter of personal taste.

Anyway, take a look at the video and decide for yourself.

If nothing else, this serves as a delectable appetizer for the main course of Rogers finally releasing the HTC Magic in Canada this year.
