Ok, it's official: HTC likes to beat on devices. First we see them stress test the Nexus One, now we watch them take a shiny new, not-even-released-yet, HTC Legend and slam it up against a wall. We flinched, no fooling, keep an eye out at 1:25.

The HTC Legend is easily the best looking phone of Mobile World Congress. The thing is carved out of a single piece of aluminium and that adds strength, reduces materials and weight, and just plain makes it feel better in your hand. Some of us (ok, me) are honestly torn between the Desire and the Legend now: I want the Desire for its power, yes, but I don't think I can walk away from the Legend's design and (potential) durability. Something tells me it did better on the "Bend Test" than the Nexus One did.

I'm thinking of just getting the Eris with my new every two and paying out right for the Incredible when it comes out. I'm tired of the waiting game.

Might as well get a droid then, worth more when you sell it, unless the form factor is that much of a concern to you.

One interesting thing to note about the Legend is that it's got a few new tricks up its Android sleeve. A new FriendStream scrobbles all status updates. photos and links from your various social networking sites. Concepts: http://bit.ly/htc-legend-preview

Difficult decision indeed as I am in the same dilemma; torn between the beauty of Legend and the power of Desire. As a current owner of Hero, I loooooove SenseUI but the CPU is way undercooked. Having said that, the Legend does include a 600Hz CPU so hopefully it will speed things up somewhat.

Looking forward to your video review of SenseUI on Legend if possible please.

I actually think the "Desire" is sexier...
