The HTC Legend serves as the successor to the Hero (that's the one with the "chin"), a device that was quite popular for HTC. The characteristic chin was a generally revered design element because it was unique and functional in its ability to give the Hero a more phone-like feel. Whenever HTC has a hit, they create a successor. The second iteration of the Hero, dubbed the Legend, is an Android 2.1 phone that is interestingly cut from a solid block of aluminmum. This material choice means that the device is super sturdy (and yet not heavy) because it's made from one piece and thus has no ...

In this video we give you a demo of how a high FPS game works on the HTC Legend, as per the request of Kevin Boss (through our News Tip form). As you can see, the Legend does a great job at keeping up with the fast-paced graphics. This game is called Raging Thunder light, which is a available for free from the Android market. Check it out!

In this video, we compare the browser of the HTC Legend (which has Flash support) with the iPhone 3GS and the HTC HD2. While browsing on the Legend isn't as smooth and easy as it is on the HD2 and iPhone, it's still quite capable with fast page load times, and generally quick screen rotations. Also, we were happy to see the inclusion of multitouch in the browser, making it easy to precisely zoom. Coming up soon is the full review. If you'd like an HTC Legend for yourself, they are now shipping over at Clove for £315 or $480.

It's clear that HTC has invested a lot into its Sense interface on Android, especially if you compare their latest iteration with what was found on earlier Sense devices like the Hero. In this video, we go through the many enhancements made to the Sense experience on the Legend, including the new pinch to zoom feature for the home screen, some new widgets, and the extension of the Sense slider into various aspects of the operating system. Coming up soon take a look at the browser of the Legend!

In this video, we take a look at the hardware on the Android-based HTC Legend. The device's solid build quality is apparent, especially after using it for a couple of days. The aluminum body gives the phone an interesting chissled feel that is unlike any other mobile. Also, because of the-one piece design, the battery, microSD, and SIM card are behind a trap door, not a back a battery cover. Aditionally, the Legend has an optical D-Pad, which replaces the mechnical D-Pad from the original Hero. In case you missed it, be sure to check out the unboxing of the Legend!

In this video, we unbox the Legend, which is among HTC's latest crop of Android 2.1 devices, and is the proper successor to the Hero. The device has an ultra-sturdy feel thanks to being made from a solid block of aluminum. The screen, which uses AMOLED technology (like the Nexus One) is super crisp and clear, and helps to save on battery. The Legend is also running HTC's latest version of Sense for Android, which brings a lot of new goodies. We've got a lot more coming up on the Legend! If you want one for yourself, they're now shipping over at Clove for £315 (unlocked) which is about $480.

Do you remember the HTC 2010 device lineup leak from December of 2009 on XDA-Developers? Believe it or not, so far, everything leaked has been accurate (minus some specification discrepancies). There are still many devices that we have yet to see, so here's a run down of what HTC could still be planning for Spring/Summer 2010: Already Announced When we first saw the Legend, we immediately knew that it was the successor to the Hero (thanks to that chin). The leak told us that the device would be released in March 2010, and guess what? Most retailers begin shipping the device tomorrow, which ...

HTC's Eric Lin gives us a walk-through of some of HTC's latest handsets, which includes the recently unveiled HTC HD Mini, Legend, and Desire. The company had unveiled those handsets at Mobile World Congress, and we're jealous of our European counterparts who will be getting those snazzy handsets. Lin also talked about the design philosophies that have been carried forward by the One & Company acquisition. One of the design element include the "hidden powerful" of the colorful back underneath the battery cover of the HTC HD Mini and the new Sprint HTC EVO 4G. One & Company was also ...

This went a bit under the radar. The HTC Desire and Legend will both have a backup feature that will automatically backup certain system elements to your microSD card, so that in case you need to factory reset your device, or swap ROMs, you can easily get everything back in a Restore step that occurs when the operating system starts up for the first time. Here's the list of what is backed up: - Text messages and MMS - Application settings for the messaging - Favorites of the browser page (Internet applications) - Dictionary of Keyboard - Settings - Regular and wireless networks - Sound and ...

If you live in the UK and want to get the Android 2.1 Sense UI sporting HTC Legend, you better be willing to make the carrier switch to Vodafone. The carrier has announced that it will be the exclusive carrier for the HTC handset in April. The Legend will also be joined by its bigger, brawnier brother, the HTC Desire, also in the same month. Folks across the pond in the States will have to look on with envy for now. (via: Engadget)

You may have heard that Vodafone will be exclusively carrying the aluminum HTC Legend in the UK. If you're not on the UK, you'll still be able to grab an unlocked Legend from etailers like Clove for £315 or about $480 as soon as next week. With that, HTC has released the official user guide and quick start guide on their website. The guides, in full color, go a long way at explaining all of the features and functions of the Legend. Thanks for the tip, Jason C.
