Been asked about this several times before and now I’ve got the answer. The Android-powered (Eclair) HTC Legend will be formally introduced/released next week.
In an invite-only event on the 29th, HTC will be introducing 3 more smartphones in the Philippines and one of them is the HTC Legend.
I’d put the HTC Legend in the same league and form-factor as the HTC Hero but with some cosmetic improvements (like that solid, silver unibody design).
3.2 inches AMOLED display @ 320×480 pixels
Qualcomm MSM 7227 600MHz CPU
Android 2.1 with HTC Sense UI
384 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM
up to 32GB on microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 2 Mbps
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
5MP autofocus camera with LED flash
Stereo FM radio with RDS
GPS w/ aGPS support
1300mAh Li-Ion battery
The other two handsets could be the HTC HD Mini (running WinMo) and the
Touch2, both running WinMo entry-level HTC Smart running the Brew Mobile OS. I don’t have the details yet as to the price of the HTC Legend but it could be north of the SRP of the HTC Hero (so possibly around Php30k to Php35k).
