The recently announced HTC Desire and HTC Legend – HTC’s newest Android smartphones – might be released in North America soon.
Apparently, AT&T will carry the HTC Desire as some sort of alternative to the Nexus One (which currently doesn’t have support for AT&T’s 3G frequencies).
According to BGR, AT&T will sell the HTC Desire starting May or June, possibly with minor changes to the casing. No word yet on pricing, but the Desire is a high-end smartphone (Android 2.1, AMOLED WVGA display, 1GHz Snapdragon CPU), so it will probably be offered for around $200 on contract.
As for the HTC Legend, Sprint might launch a CDMA version of it as HTC Hero2.
Like Sprint’s first Hero, the Hero2 will have a modified design. Its release date is not known at the moment, but let’s hope all this will be confirmed soon.
