HTC Legend to be launched by Virgin Canada. Nokia 7230 coming to Bell
Earlier this month, we’ve heard that Bell plans to launch the HTC Legend in Canada. While this hasn’t happened yet, we’re now hearing that Canadian customers will also be able to get the Android 2.1 smartphone via Virgin Mobile (currently wholly owned by Bell).
Mobile Syrup has a screenshot showing that the Legend has already been included in Virgin’s inventory.
The smartphone’s launch date is not known at the moment. As for its price, the leaked screenshot suggests that the no-contract price will be of $357 – but that’s unlikely, since the Legend is sold in Europe for more than $400.
Back to Bell: besides getting the HTC Legend, the second largest Canadian carrier will also launch a new phone from Nokia – the 7230 slider (so this is why the handset passed the FCC with North American 3G).
The Nokia 7230 is an arguably stylish handset that features a 2.4 inch QVGA display, 3G, 3.5mm headset jack, Nokia Maps, and a 3.2MP camera. Bell will sell the phone starting May 28, for $29.95 with a 3-year contract agreement, or $129.99 on pre-pay (limited time offer).
