A Very Cool Backup Feature to Debut on HTC Desire and Legend

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 display

– Location

– Applications

– Date and Time

– Language and keyboard – only locale

– Setting on the backup copy is located in the mail

It’s likely that we’ll see this very useful feature going forward on HTC’s devices.
