HTC Legend to release in UK exclusively on Vodafone; will launch along with HTC Desire in April

March 15, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Vodafone announced today that the HTC Legend will be available in the UK exclusive to their network. The aluminium-finish successor to the HTC Hero will release along with HTC’s rehash of the Nexus One, the HTC Desire come this April. The two devices will be accompanied by Sony Ericcson’s X10 and the Nexus One. But a launch date for the Vodafone N1 is unknown as of now.

HTC Legend is one sleek looking device with its all-aluminium body and its stunning 3.2inch AMOLED HVGA display. It is the successor to the popular HTC Hero and will come packed with an upgraded Sense UI with Friend Stream widget. This will aggregate friend status updates from a number of social networking services into a single stream. The phone will run on Android 2.1 OS and features an optical trackball, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack for your music.

As you probably know, HTC is the manufacturer of the Google Nexus One. The HTC Desire is HTC’s own version of the Nexus One which comes with their proprietary HTC Sense UI and some other perks. It debuted at the MWC 2010 earlier this year and was called by some as the most powerful android phone on the market. The Desire features a rather big, 3.7 inch 480×800 AMOLED display and is powered by the same 1 GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon processor that runs on the Nexus One. The smartphone will run on the Android 2.1 OS and will come with Flash 10.1 support. There is also speculation about some future updates that will add support for DivX video playback and 720p encoding on the HTC Desire.
