A pocketnow reader, Jim Carr, recently had a chat with an AT&T representative, who revealed that “very soon or this summer” AT&T will be getting two new Android phones. We’re thinking that this could include the HTC Legend, since it recently passed the FCC. The rep also mentions that the carrier expects the new iPhone “by end of June”. Here’s the chat in full:
Ingrid: Welcome to AT&T online Sales support. How may I assist you with placing your order today?
Jim: Do you carry the HTC Pure new anymore? All I see is refurbished, there isn’t even a page for the new device.
Ingrid: I will be happy to assist.
Ingrid: HTC is coming out with new phones pretty soon.
Jim: Will they be similar to the Pure?
Ingrid: Better since they will have Android technology.
Jim: Wow, that sounds great. Do you know if they will be touchscreen like the Pure, or have a keyboard?
Ingrid: Touch screen.
Jim: When might I expect to be able to get one? I’m looking to buy soon, but I could wait a few weeks
Ingrid: Anytime now or summer.
Jim: Sounds great. Thanks for the heads up. I just did a quick web search, would this happen to be one of the devices? http://pocketnow.com/tech-news/att-htc-pc70110-is-the-android-touch-pro2
Ingrid: The Hero is one of them the second one we do not have official word yet.
Jim: Would it possibly be the Legend or the Desire? I’m a little confused about the Hero, since that’s an older device, the Legend is basically the successor to it. So might they be the Legend and Desire?
Ingrid: Maybe if you type upcoming phones to AT&T you may get additional information.
Jim: So you cannot confirm if either the Legend or Desire are one of these devices?
Ingrid: Not yet since we do not have official Information, we are getting a new iPhone by June.
Jim: Just wondering do you know the date on that?
Ingrid: By the end of June.
Jim: Have a great day
