HTC Legend to arrive in Canada before the US

HTC Legend Android Smartphone

Yes, everyone is still clamoring over the pending official announcement of a new iPhone, but that doesn’t mean that other smartphones should be left out in the cold. In fact, you could get a rather legendary phone from Bell, possibly by the end of this month. From what we hear, Bell Mobility is hosting a special launch party in Montreal on May 27 and it is there that they will be hocking the new HTC Legend smartphone. The Canadian carrier has yet to announce an official release date, but a launch party is a pretty good indication.

The expectation is a ship date in early June, but that would still place the Canadian launch of the HTC Legend ahead of American carriers. No formal announcement (that we know of) has been made for the US, but the phone has made its way through the FCC offices. It’s not like Canada is first in line, however, as the HTC Legend is already being sold by Vodafone UK. Even so, it’s nice to see Canada getting the jump on the US from time to time… like in the Olympic men’s hockey and most recently NHL beating out the defending Stanley Cup champs.

The HTC Legend, as a quick refresher, comes with a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen, Google Android OS 2.1, and a 5MP camera to go with its optical trackpad.

    Purchased my Legend 2 nights ago and love it. Its everything i expected from all the reviews and videos I’ve seen. Bought the phone through Telstra who have exclusive rights to it for the first few months.

    One thing that annoys me about that is that the phone appears to have their branding on it. Totally annoys the hell out of me. Want to remove it but I would most likely have to flash it.
