Vodafone launches Android competition

The Magic is exclusive to Vodafone

Vodafone is asking its UK customers what type of applications they would like to see feature on one of its latest flagship devices.

To coincide with the recent launch of the HTC Magic - a new network-exclusive model that is the third to hit the British market equipped with the Google Android operating system (OS) - the carrier wants to hear the most innovative ways it could be used.

Vodafone said: "The [handset] is known for its wide array of impressive Android apps," adding: "Your application could be the next big thing for mobile phone users the world over.

With a top prize of £1,000 and a free HTC Magic, those currently recycling mobile phones may want to get their thinking caps on ahead of the September 20th deadline. Ten runners up will also get their hands on the model.

The phone follows the T Mobile G1 and recently-launched Hero to the market as one of the three models now available with the Android OS.
