HTC Legend Appears in Wild on Eve of Mobile World Congress

Even though CES was a huge coming out party last month, next week’s Mobile World Congress looks to be even bigger.  This is the event to attend if you are a handset maker with half a decent product line.  Anyone who is anyone will be in Spain next week showing off their coming devices.  Among those big names… HTC.

We’re nearly certain that HTC will unveil the Legend handset next week.  The heir apparent to the Hero, it maintains the look and feel of one of their most popular handsets of 2009 while bringing some new to the table.

The Legend was spotted a couple of times this week, giving us a pretty good look at the front and back sides.  We’re fans of the back design as it’s not your typical flush battery cover; We like the character it adds.

As we wait for the official announcement, here’s a few rumored specs.

  • 3.2-inch HVGA AMOLED Touch Screen
  • 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 Processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi, Magnetic Compass
  • Quadband GSM / EDGE plus dualband HSPA
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 1300mAh battery
