Bad news for many Rogers HTC Dream and Magic owners: according to a posting on HTC’s website (which was apparently then confirmed by Rogers themselves), HTC Dream and Magic owners will NOT receive an official Android OS update to 1.6

Can I upgrade my Rogers Magic device to Android 1.6?

HTC is not currently planning any Android 1.6 upgrades for Rogers Dream or Magic. Android 1.6 was only made available for “Google”-branded devices such as the G1. It is not available for HTC-branded products such as the Dream or Magic, which use Android 1.5. We believe that Android 1.5 is a stable and reliable software platform that delivers a terrific user experience

Pretty disappointing to say the least…  especially when the phones were launched they were dubbed a “Revolution” by Rogers.  Do you think it’s safe to say Rogers customers definitely won’t be receiving any éclairs or flan’s either?
