Couple of week back I bought a HTC magic for Rs. 26,000 from a neighborhood retailer. Technically this is my second Android phone the first was a self flashed Openmoko's Freerunner. The piece I have is an imported set from Vodafone UK. In India the same handset is available through Airtel but without Google goodies including Android market [Edit: Firmware update not only enables market but also Sense UI]. This omission is a mystery to me. No one buys a Rs. 27K phone only for making calls and sending SMSs.
