Update to HTC Legend Brings Missing Apps Back

We reported earlier this week that HTC Desire customers were frustrated after finding many popular apps were not available to them in the Android Market.  Apparently, Legend owners have the same gripe.  For the Desire, it was quickly found that the reason behind this was that Google had yet to sign off on the ROM. What about the Legend?

HTC’s support page is now indicating that a firmware update is available for the Desire, but it strangely refers to the camera.  Engadget Mobile believes this is the OTA firmware you are looking for.  Keep an eye on your phone for the notification of an OTA update.  Have you already received this download?  Did it help?
