**[**]()**Vodafone HTC Magic will receive an OTA update to 1.6 if it’s not already on the handset in the box

If the phone you want isn’t here, don’t forget you can buy it from an overseas website and have it shipped to you in Australia.

What plans are available in Australia?

The Australian version of the Lifehacker website has put together a guide to contracts and plans available with the major providers for their available Android phones. Great stuff!

And now they have also released a guide to current prices for handset outright purchase.
