Two new Android devices: HTC Legend and Desire

by Volker Weber


Legend: great looks / Desire: great specs

Will wait until November before I change my Hero. The Legend looks like it is the Hero specs in a new shell and Android 2.1

The Desire however.......

Your Hero should be good for another year. Jeff Gilfelt has said it nicely:

You can only be the owner of the "best" Android phone on the market for a period of 4-6 weeks (unless that is your upgrade cycle).

Love that tweet.

With the news that Android 2.1 is imminent (March), hopefully there is a good deal of life left in the new dog yet.

I have both a 1.6 and a 2.1 device and the difference is not so huge that you would want a new phone.

I was playing with the Legend for 5 Minutes and really fell for it. My favorite comment (without source) was: It's like Hero and Macbook Pro had a baby. Can't wait for the longer reviews.

Which Android has the best physical keyboard (I see that neither of these does)? I guess, if any clarification were needed - - the best from the standpoint of a touch typist?

...and I know, I won't be doing five-finger touch typing on any mobile phone... my point was regarding best in terms of "fat-finger proof" etc.
