HTC Magic release in Spain, with apps on SD?

 I was browsing Google News, and I stumbled on some articles that said
that the HTC Magic was released in Spain today.  So curious, I went to
the Vodafone Spain site (using Google Translate of course!) and sure
enough, it read that the countdown was complete and you could get
yours today!  But then when I was looking at the description it read
"8GB MicroSD card to store your APPLICATIONS, music, photos or
videos" maybe this is just a translating issue (doubt it!), a
slip up (they didn't know what they were talking about), or maybe,
just maybe they're hinting at something here.  Maybe this is the
response to the dire call that so many have been pleading for.
Myself, I think it would be AMAZING!!!

What about you guys?

Here it is (regular, not translated): ;sl=es&tl=en

And here translated with google translate: ;hl=en&js=n&u= ;sl=es&tl=en

Scroll to the last line of the description, near the bottom.

 Android 1.5 does not support installing applications on the SD card.

 Maybe they meant PC based applications ( Linux / Mac / M$ ) and you are 
assuming Android applications.  I carry Putty, VNC and a few other apps 
on my phone just in case of emergencies.  :-)

1. HTC's media player on the HTC Hero is misbehaving and is intercepting all the Bluetooth media buttons

I have been receiving complaints from users of my application that
have the HTC Hero.  The HTC media player on this phone always
intercepts the Bluetooth media buttons.  I searched the development
forum and found this post:

2. DDMS GPS doesn't work: Send -120,35 loc = lm.getLastKnownLocation() returns null

I used to be able to use the GPS inside DDMS, now it doesn't work...
Using English/Eclipse/Vista. Everything updated in eclipse->help-

This always returns null:
loc = lm.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);

Not sure what you will ask, so here goes: Using:
Google APIs Platform=2.0.1 API Level=6
AVD details:
hw.gps: yes
hw.lcd.density: 160
w.audioOutput: yes no

I don't see any errors in console. The last thing it says is:
Attempting to connect de{*filter*}.
My app comes up fine, just the GPS is dead...
In eclipse, I go into DDMS, Emulator Control, enter lat, lon =
-120.0,35.0 and hit send.
Nothing happens.

I have tried to update to the latest and remove all old stuff, but no
Any inspiration appreciated
