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 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.

HTC HD mini shrinks HD2 experience

HTC HD mini shrinks HD2 experience

HTC's new smartphone range for MWC 2010 isn't all about Android; the company have also outed a new Windows Mobile device, though of course it runs 6.5.3 rather than Windows Phone 7.  The HTC HD mini is being billed as offering the same user experience as the HD2 only in a smaller form factor, shrinking the display down to a 3.2-inch capacitive HVGA panel with multitouch support and swapping the HD2's Snapdragon chipset for a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227.  Like the HD2, it also gets HTC's Sense UI.

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.

HTC Trophy gets clearly pictured: QWERTY/touchscreen WinMo candybar [Update: It's a fan render]

HTC Trophy gets clearly pictured: QWERTY/touchscreen WinMo candybar [Update: It's a fan render]

HTC's 2010 smartphone roadmap may have skewed heavily toward Android, but that wasn't to say the company were planning to abandon Windows Mobile altogether.  The first clear render of the HTC Trophy - a Windows Mobile 6.5 candybar with a 3-inch VGA capacitive touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard - has leaked, and despite the OS it looks to have potential.

Update: Too good to be true; this isn't HTC's work but that of ElCondor from xda-developers; somewhere along the line his watermark has been edited out.  He's done a great job, too: compare it to the fuzzy image in the leaked roadmap.  If the Trophy looks this good in real life, we'll take one! [Thanks Sohaib!]

Taking the software enhancements from your flagship Android smartphone and injecting it into the runt of the range might throw up warning signs for some, but that's exactly what HTC have done with the Tattoo.
