So you thought the HTC Magic would launch in the UK first while the rest of Europe suffered through a TBD status… not so fast! Just 16 hours ago a tweet from UnAndroide indicated that a big surprise was coming in days and not hours. And hours later a it was revealed (translated) that the HTC Magic was launching on Vodafone Spain! Now the following graphic adorns Vodafone Spain’s website:
The UK Magic was made available for Pre-Order but according to my limited translating capabilities via Google Translate it seems that in Spain the HTC Magic will launch for purchase TODAY, potentially beating the UK version to market. Hopefully some Spanish speaking Phandroid readers can verify (or un-verify) this in the comments. Pop the text from that Vodafone Spain HTC Magic graphic into Google Translate and here is what you get:
Vodafone HTC Magic with Google.
Feel the magic in your hands.

Vodafone Spain not only has an Android Blog but they’ve also provided Twitter and “Share On Facebook” links. Here is the translated version of their blog announcement although again, readability (and understandification) are limited. I’ll append details we learn (via reader comments) to the bottom of this post:
