HTC Legend launches with Virgin Mobile, Bell soon to follow
HTC Legend arrives in Canada
The whole Android scene in Canada is about to get a heck of a lot more interesting. One of the most highly sought after devices is the HTC Legend and it’s coming to the land of the maple leaf. Today. As in, right now. It has been officially confirmed that the HTC Legend Android smartphone is available through Virgin Mobile Canada as of today. It’s not on their website yet, so it could be an in-store only thing for the time being.
If the little brother gets the phone, the big daddy should get it too, right? As it turns out, Bell Mobility will also be grabbing the HTC Legend, but it won’t start selling the smartphone until June 17. This has also been confirmed by “inside sources.”
As a quick refresher, the Hero-esque HTC Legend gets its power from Google Android 2.1 and the HTC Sense user interface. IT also features an aluminum unibody construction, 3.2-inch capacitive AMOLED display, optical trackpad, 5MP camera, 3.5mm headset jack, 600MHz Qualcomm processor, 3G, WiFi, microSD slot, and GPS.
Virgin Mobile will sell the HTC Legend for $79.99 with a three-year contract and, presumably, Bell Mobility will offer similar pricing.
