AT&T-spec HTC Legend spotted crossing the FCC

AT&T-spec HTC Legend spotted crossing the FCC

We made no disguise of our lust for the shiny, MacBook-esque loveliness of the HTC Legend when we reviewed it back in March, and so the idea of it crossing over from Europe to the US and Canada tickles us in the very best of places.  The newly published FCC listing may not mention the Legend by name, but some codename and label sleuthing certainly seems to imply that it refers to an HTC Legend with AT&T-friendly 850/1900 WCDMA support.

HTC Legend review

HTC Legend review

We did little to disguise how impressed we were with the HTC Hero when we reviewed it all the way back in July 2009. At the time we suggested it was the device with which Android came of age; since then, of course, we've seen a huge growth both in the number of manufacturers and devices available, and in Android itself. Into that fray wades the HTC Legend, undoubtedly one of the stand-out devices from MWC 2010 in February and packing the latest versions not only of Android but of HTC's Sense, which rather fittingly debuted with the Hero. Can HTC history repeat itself? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC Legend: I need a Hero

HTC Legend: I need a Hero

You could well argue that the HTC Hero was the Android smartphone of 2009. While Motorola's DROID brought with it a larger display, newer version of the OS and arguably more functional hardware keyboard, HTC led the pack months in advance. Multitouch-capable, distinctly designed and outfitted with a genuinely compelling UI in the shape of HTC Sense, the Hero fast became the poster-child of Android. Now, the company are hoping to follow that success with the HTC Legend, a slick Hero update with a tactile unibody aluminum shell. Is it a worthy sequel or has the HTC Desire stolen the Legend's flagship thunder; more importantly, is it sufficiently different from the smartphone it replaces?

HTC Legend Hands-on

HTC Legend Hands-on

We've just been playing with the HTC Legend, and if we had to distill it down - hardware wise at least - into a single metaphor, imagine if a MacBook Pro shrank down to smartphone size. Slimmer than the HTC Hero it replaces, the Legend packs a bright, vivid, well-saturated 3.2-inch HVGA display and has a responsive, swift capacitive touchscreen. Check out more hands-on first impressions after the cut, together with our live demo video.

HTC Legend official: AMOLED & “Hidden Power” design

HTC Legend official: AMOLED & “Hidden Power” design

The HTC Legend, successor to the company's widely-loved Hero, has been made official at Mobile World Congress 2010 this week. A little smaller than the Hero, the Legend has a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with multitouch support, dualband UMTS/HSPA (900/1800) and a frame milled from a single block of aluminum. In fact the Legend is an example of HTC's "Hidden Power" design ethos, a concept whereby good looks are delivered through slick functionality; in this case, the aluminum is not only the shell but the chassis, meaning HTC can make their devices smaller.

March release of HTC Legend claims carrier KPN

March release of HTC Legend claims carrier KPN

The existence of the HTC Legend is no great surprise - after all, we've seen the handset in the wild a couple of times now - but going by Dutch carrier KPN the Android smartphone is almost certainly going to make its official appearance at Mobile World Congress 2010 next week.  The carrier prematurely posted a preview page for the Legend this week, confirming some of the rumored specifications in the process, and tipping availability in March.

The reservation form was quickly pulled, but not before Tweakers grabbed a few shots of it.  As we've heard, the Legend has a 5-megapixel camera, GPS and AGPS, and is clearly shown running HTC's Sense UI system.  Unfortunately there's no confirmation of some of the more technical rumors about the phone, particularly talk of it running a faster, 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset than the Hero's 528MHz chip.
