HTC Legend

Yep, there it is. Another look at the HTC Legend, which appears destined to replace the venerable Hero. And with a new picture comes new specs: A 3.2-inch AMOLED screen at half-VGA, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, aGPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, a Qualcomm MSM7227 processor at 600MHz, and the other usual bells and whistles.

The processor keeps it from being in the top tier of Android phones, but it's certainly still up there, and an AMOLED screen can make up for a lot. No word, however, on availability or pricing. [Twitter via AndroidCommunity]

Another shot of the HTC Legend, plus specs, to boot


go kill yourself, the sprint hero is ugly as hell, the euro hero is a beast dude, you must be american to think that (i'm european but i was raised in the us) and we been making horrible decisions

I can honestly say I have the Sprint Hero, and with automatic google sync shut off, the 528 MHz processor causes the phone to run exceptionally smooth with every screen animation responding/transitioning exactly how it should - give it a shot, and tell me you don't experience the same... I've heard, although cannot confirm, that the Moto Droid has some hiccups here and there as well. Do you feel as though it has something to do with Google's background syncing?

However, I do have to say, if 1 GHz processors are becoming the standard, the 600 MHz does sound less appealing - but if it's not needed, the above wouldn't be half bad. Right?

that would jump the cost up, and it would counter act the N1 being their flagship. So no phone in the near future is going to match the specs of the N1

Looks just like the Euro-Hero which is not a bad thing. Not really feeling the specs on it tho. Would be a good beginner Android phone for at&t customers/beginners.

those of you who think this is going to sprint, u were lucky as hell to even get the hero do not expect this on sprint AT&T, T-mobile yh but not sprint or Verizon (cdma pieces of shit)

is this going to sprint? it would be nice, we would have the hero, supersonic, and the legend! oh....dont forget about the moment..oops
