New Forum Added for HTC Desire and Legend
At Mobile World Congress HTC announced two new Android devices, the Desire and Legend. The Desire is similar in a lot of ways to the Google Nexus One, except that it adds more RAM, the Sense interface, and an optical trackball. The Legend, on the other hand, is the successor to the HTC Hero. New is a cut-from-aluminum design (be sure you watch John Wong prove the device’s rigidity when he slams the Legend against the wall at the HTC Press conference at 11:37), plus more RAM, a faster CPU, and the latest version of Sense for Android. By popular request, we’ve added general forums for the HTC Legend and HTC Desire. Enjoy!
