HTC Legend launched in Australia (via Vodafone / 3)
HTC announced that Vodafone and 3 mobile (part of the Vodafone Hutchison joint-venture) would be the only Australian mobile carriers to sell the HTC Legend.
The Legend will be available in Australia starting June 3 (first at Vodafone) – about one month after Telstra started selling the HTC Desire.
Like the Desire, the HTC Legend runs Android 2.1. However, it doesn’t have as many high-end features – but this doesn’t mean it’s not a great smartphone. The Legend has a case made out of aluminum and comes with a HVGA AMOLED touchscreen display, Sense UI, HTC Peep, Facebook integration, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera, and MicroSD card support.
Vodafone Australia will offer the HTC Legend for free on contracts from 49 AUD per month, or for 599 AUD ($499) sans contract.
