HTC Legend reaches first N American carrier

Virgin Mobile Canada had the distinction later on Friday of becoming the first North American carrier to offer the HTC Legend. Its version runs on the 850MHz and 1,900MHz 3G bands but is otherwise very close to the international version with a 3.2-inch, 480x320 AMOLED touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera with flash, GPS and Wi-Fi. It runs Android 2.1 with the latest version of HTC's Sense UI and stands out through an extremely solid, unibody aluminum body.

The Legend costs $80 Canadian when attached to a three-year contract but is relatively inexpensive contract-free, as it tops out at just $350. Bell is expected to carry the Legend as well, but it missed its predicted target and may be several days off. Americans may not get the phone until a CDMA edition for Sprint.
