HTC Legend Hands-on

Hold the HTC Legend for the first time, and it's instant love. Let a month go by and come back to it, and you start to wonder how you ever did without it.

Such is the case with the Legend, Android 2.1 and HTC's custom Sense user interface. (Read our preview of the Sense here.) A little more than a month after we were in Barcelona for its unveiling at Mobile World Congress, it's time to give the Legend and its unibody design another spin.

Initial hands-on after the break, and look for a full review in the coming days.

This thing looks pretty damn sexy. Wonder if VZW will ever get it?

Also...I am suddenly jealous that you have access to 10,000 toys (phones). How could you ever get bored? :-p

Seriously, how the hell are you getting all these phones? Do i need to start a site like this just for the toys, if so, done.

the only thing I hate about this phone is the small screen on it... like that huge gap there is annoying...

also.. Phil no disrespect or offense man, but please stop biting your finger nails... it's not healthy, and not good for your teeth either... I couldn't stop looking at them and it was quite annoying...

It looks like a great device, bit it really isn't a good upgrade from the Hero. I don't really see any great improvements. The Hero is a great device and with the new update it will almost be on the same level as this device.

now that I have the Desire ROM installed on my rooted Nexus One - I can say the Sense 2.1 UI is actually quite good... a lot of cool extras in there that are not in the stock Nexus ROM...

Phil,
Thanks for all you do for the community. This may be being over-worried but did this video show a fair amount of your friends personal contact info (twitter and address book)?

Also, loved the music. David Sanborn? Porn soundtrack?

thx again.
