Androidandme has managed to lay their hands on basic information about the HTC Legend, and a scanned photo of the phone. Let us see what we have got here.

Of course, HTC would launch its update Sense UI on top of the Android OS. The specifications list show both CDMA and GSM versions of the Legend. You get a 3.2 inch capacitative touchscreen, five megapixel autofocus camera, all being powered by a Qualcomm processor running at 600 MHz.
A clickable mouse is located on the center of the ‘chin’ of the HTC Legend.
There is also a 3.5mm audio jack which will be welcomed.
