Sprint is rumored to get HTC Legend, AT&T may pick up the Desire

We're not even a full week removed from Mobile World Congress, and already the rumors are starting to fly regarding U.S. availability of the HTC Legend and Desire, which were unveiled there. Said rumors come from the Boy Genius Report, and are as follows:

  • AT&T will release the HTC Desire -- basically the Nexus One with the new Sense UI -- with some minor cosmetic changes. A May-June time frame is possible.
  • Sprint could get the Legend as the Hero 2, and it also could see some small cosmetic changes.
  • Google may still release an AT&T 3G-compatible Nexus One at Google.com/phone.
  • Oh, and speaking of the Legend, WirelessGoodness [via AndroPhones] spotted it going through the FCC. So it's got that going for it, which is nice.

Of course all that is unofficial and subject to change. But it's far from out of the realm of possibility, and it doesn't take a betting man to know that HTC has great stuff in store for the United States this year.
