    I am new to Android development. I am bit puzzled with the development device. I have two options.

    1. Sign up with Google android developer and purchase a developer phone (unlocked) $399 US.

    2. Upgrade my current phone with rogers to HTC magic (locked for sure).

    I am not sure what is the best option at this point. My frist question is does it matter if I use option 2 and write some applications and play with it. If it blows off the phone, will I have to pay rogers or I can install the OS and get it back. Is there a backup that I can do before starting developing on option 2.

    Let me know what you think.
