>> Bonnie Cha: Hi I'm Bonnie Cha Senior Editor at CNET.com and we are here in Las Vegas for CTIA 2010, taking a first look at the HTC Legend. It's made by HTC and it's using HTC Sense user experience and they have added some cool things. One is a leap feature where you can see all of your running apps in thumbnails and you can easily switch between apps. You can also have a group contact so you can have one for your family, one for your work. There's also something called Friend Stream where you can see all your status updates, and Twitters from your friends, things like that. Has that little signature [inaudible] of HTCs which I actually don't mind, and it actually cops off and you'll see the SIM card and micro SD slot. Just beautiful design, really solid feeling and very nice and compact. On front here you've got a AMOLED screen that's really gorgeous and you've got 7 home screens that you can customize with widgets. It has Wi-Fi 3G and Bluetooth, the works. We don't know if it's coming to the US. They haven't announced any carriers. It is available in Europe right now, but you can always buy it unlocked. I really do home that a US carrier picks it up though cause it looks like a really just a standout device. So I just wanted to give you a quick look at the HTC Legend and I'm Bonnie Cha from CNET.com.

HTC Legend - silver Review
The good: The HTC Legend boasts a beautiful design with an AMOLED touch screen. The Android 2.1 smartphone adds a faster processor, more RAM, and a camera flash. HTC Sense features new and useful enhancements.
The bad: The Legend isn't compatible with North American 3G bands. Camera quality is mixed.
The bottom line: With its design improvements and feature enhancements, the HTC Legend is a worthy upgrade from the Hero and one of the most solid and well-built Android phones we've seen in its class. We can only hope that a North American version is released soon.
