Once of the smartphones leaked in HTC's 2010 line-up was the Legend. While most follow-up coverage has focused on the Bravo and the HTC Passion (aka Nexus One), we're now starting to learn a little more about the other phones on that list. The Legend doesn't have quite as much flash or flair as the Bravo or Passion but if the blog is correct (via Android and Me) it's still going to be a hot budget device. The Legend will debut at the Mobile World Congress and is expected to hit stores of March in 2010. This could mean that the Legend is the long-awaited sequel to the HTC Hero. Its updated specifications include a Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz processor, 5 MP auto-focus camera, LED flash, 3.2" AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 512 MB flash memory, 256 MB RAM, and a 1300 mAH battery. It'll also have a microSD slot, WLAN, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS/AGPS, a G-Sensor, digital compass, FM radio, optical mouse, 3.5mm jack, and a gorgeous steel body.Again, the Legend is no Nexus One, but it's easily the best budget smartphone we've seen in a very long while. The processor its packing was designed by Qualcomm for sub-$150 smartphones, so that's the rough price range we can expect this device to launch at. Those of you looking for an affordable, quality Android 2.0 device will have your work cut out for you in 2010.
