Vodafone confirms HTC Android 2.1 duo

Legend and Desire coming to network

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Vodafone has flagged up the forthcoming release of HTC's Android-based smartphones Legend and Desire on its network next month.

Legend will come with Vodafone's 360 content and social networking portal pre-loaded. Like Desire, it has a 5Mp camera and an on-board GPS pick-up, but Legend's display is just 3.2in to the Desire's 3.7in screen. Desire also has a faster, 1GHz processor - a Qualcomm Snapdragon, to be precise.

Both handsets will run Android 2.1, aka Eclair.

Vodafone didn't say whether the handsets will be offered with pay monthly packages, as PAYG phones or both.

The network is still listing the much-anticipated Google Nexus One as "coming soon" - so no firm date for the smartphone's release yet, we're afraid.

Both Orange and 3 have already said they will offer the Desire next month. ®
