Rumor: HTC Desire to AT&T, Legend to Sprint
The two new Android handsets from HTC, the Legend and Desire, appear to have their US destinations already mapped out. According to Boy Genius Report, the Desire will be headed for AT&T when it arrives here in the states. Rumored to maintain the Desire branding, it will also find itself a home in the Google store. BGR’s source also says that there may be some cosmetic changes (color, finish, etc) upon arrival.
As for the HTC Legend, it’s said to be headed for Sprint. We can’t say this comes as much of a surprise to us. The Legend is the direct descendant of the Hero, which Sprint redesigned for the US. BGR has been told that Sprint will modify it (probably remove chin) and market it as the Hero2 once it hits the Now Network. We hope that the carrier doesn’t strip the Legend of its character. Not only does the handset feature a chin, but the single piece of aluminum body gives it a distinct look. Hey Sprint, don’t knock this down to a standard slab phone!
