Exchange Support Included with Rogers HTC Magic and HTC Dream

rogers3We’re only about a week away from the Canadian arrival of Google Android and it turns out that these Android phones will have a little added bonus. We’ve already heard that the Rogers versions of the HTC Magic and HTC Dream will get loaded with the latest Cupcake update, but they’ll also come with Exchange support too.

We’re not just talking about some sort of third-party solution or some sort of Android app that you’ll need to download. Instead, Rogers is letting you have Microsoft Exchange support right out of the box. This’ll be good for some folks, but it comes at a bit of a price.

As you can see through the image provided, the Rogers version of the Magic and Dream does not have Google branding on the back. Instead, the full “Google Experience” branding is being replaced by Rogers only slab of branding. In doing so, Rogers was able to add Exchange, but a few tidbits had to be removed.

You win some and you lose some, but any kind of official Android love in Canada will be greatly appreciated at this point.

    it actually may be a good thing. the new HTC sense UI will not be available for "Google branded" android phones.There's some solid information, however, that Rogers HTC phones – precisely because they don't have the google brand! – *maybe* getting the shiny new UI. So, it could be fore the best. Anyway, a brand' is a brand is a brand.

    Damn Rogers! It's already bad enough that I'll be ripped off by Rogers for three years, but they will be devaluing my phone with the evil Rogers logo instead of the good old Google logo. I can't wait for more GSM providers come to Canada and then I'll never ever use a Rogers service again!
