More HTC Bravo pictures and info on the Legend
While Tom couldn't grab a shot of the HTC Legend, the information about the device is very interesting. The body is composed entirely of aluminum and cannot be broken. The display is an AMOLED 3.7 inch screen, most likely 480 x 800 with support for 16 million colors. Android 2.1 will be on the device unless Google has finished a newer build. There is a trackpad with 4 function buttons under the display. The phone seems to be smaller than the Hero with the same rounded corners and will debut in March.

Yea no trackball , and perfect timing on a release. Now who's going to be the lucky Carrier?

I'm a little torn on the trackball thing. I think it was a great idea to implement on cell phones, but it is probably the largest culprit of "butt dialing" in Blackberry devices. I have a Pearl for work and I had to cut a hole out of my carry case just so the trackball isn't doing it's on thing in its case and calling Timbuktu and changing critical settings. I don't know how they are on Android devices as I only played with my friend's G1 a little bit and never asked him about it's trackball pro's and con's. Hopefully the trackpad works just as well without the "butt dialing" issues.

Isn't the HTC Legend supposed to be the Hero's successor? Earlier rumours stated that the display is 3.2-inches or something - especially since you stated that it's "smaller than the Hero".

This story comes from a Google translation, it is possible that the translation was messed up and instead should have read thinner not smaller, just a hunch.

Actually translation is good, Tom said that Legend is smaller and more neat than Hero. :)
