HTC Desire and Legend get new color schemes

They might not be quite as exciting as the HTC Desire Z and HTC Desire HD, but that doesn't mean the original Desire and HTC Legend have run out of appeal quite yet.  HTC has officially confirmed the brilliant white Desire spotted last month together with an ominous looking "phantom black" version of the Legend which would go very well with your Darth Vader costume.

Updates for the HTC Desire, Legend and Wildfire aren't far off, as HTC has confirmed that they're planning an Android 2.2 Froyo roll-out - complete with HTC Sense, of course - sometime from Q3 2010.  According to the company's UK team, the three handsets are among "several of our 2010 models" that will get the updated version of the Android OS, which their engineers are currently hard at work on.

HTC’s AMOLED Legend display botching grayscale?

HTC’s AMOLED Legend display botching grayscale?

AMOLED screens have once again come in for attention over concerns regarding image quality, as Tweakers took two HTC Legends into the lab to demonstrate the issues they have displaying grayscale correctly.  The Legend - shown here snuggling with an Apple iPod touch and an HTC Hero - apparently proved unable to show regular grayscale, instead offering up a range of muted pinks, grays, greens and browns.

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 Diamond2 gets Android 2.1 with HTC Sense [Video]

Last time we saw Android running on a previously Windows Mobile device, it was the HTC Touch Pro2 and the Android 2.1 ROM from the Google Nexus One.  This time around it's the turn of the HTC Touch Diamond2, and the Android 2.1 ROM from the HTC Legend, which means as well as all that Google goodness there are lashings of HTC Sense, too.

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.
