Will AT&T be the place where Legends are born?

This article contains unofficial information.

Will AT&T be the place where Legends are born?
From all appearances, it was just another phone getting a perusal by the FCC prior to being sold. But the FCC label apparently matches the one on the inside of the HTC Legend.  What else can we discern from the filing? How about the radio frequencies? The FCC filing says the phone might end up with a carrier that supports the 850 and 1900 MHz WCDMA bands. This limits the potential carriers receiving the HTC Legend in North America to AT&T in the U.S. and Telus, Bell and Rogers up north. Adding to the circumstantial evidence is the similarities in the FCC's ID numbers. The first time through the FCC, the number was PB76100 and the new filing number is PB76110. Put this all together and it looks like a living legend is AT&T bound.

If this ends up on at&t it will fail. At&t is going to cripple all their android phones because of their feud with google and their partial ownership of yahoo. Case in point is the backflip. Horrible company that relies only on one phone. I know, I used to work for them; just horrible

supposedly... it looks as though we(att) have learned a lesson, at least in part, as the dell aero is supposedly coming without all the google apps missing like they were on the backflip.... and seeing that you could just download them all from the market, nothing would be missing anyway... all the first reviews of the aero were of a pre-release model that didn't have them installed... but dell said that they would all be there in the final launch version.

i still think tht the legend, if AT&T is gettn it, will be as strippd down as the backflip. i work for AT&T and i dont offer the backflip because of tht. i want customer to receive full range motion with every phone AT&T has to offer and if they're anal about the i-phone and what it can REALLY do, they'll do the same with every other phone. AT&T must be either tht anal or stupid to not let the phones do wht they're supposed to do

Even so, the incredible blows this phone right off the map.

i will just continue to love my att nexus one... feels better than the incredible.. and only real difference is 8mp vs 5 camera... but neither are as good as the x10's image quality, so gonna hold out for its launch in july :-)

I like the look of incredible way more than the N1. I dont like the tracking ball on the N1. Sensor tracking and touch sensor buttons are cool~

and the ui and the trackball being optical on the incredable. Oh one more thing is the more advanced touchscreen that does not get all confused. Its is defintally an upgrad all be it not huge than the nexus one

Google itself didn't seem to think the Nexus One was a better choice than the Incredible...as they directed those on Verizon to purchase the Incredible instead and wouldn't allow to purchase the N1. I'm just sayin...N1 may look nice but seems to be out-spec'd in more areas than just the quality of camera...even tho both devices were made by HTC. Things that make you go hmmm...

the the incredible is a better phone, much better touchscreen, Sense UI is sweet and makes android seem more smooth and refined, and the small things like a extended battery and built in 8gb memory are sweet I will however agree with you the N1 is better looking, but I dont care I have always been a function over form guy at any rate I have a moto droid and need to wait tel september to upgrade and I be this wont be the top dog then

there was some problem with the nexus that it kept failing VZW testing... and the incredible didnt. thats the answer to the question. What failed was a different story. Google and HTC make money one either phone, so why wouldnt u push the one thats out?

For those whining about AT&T BLOATWARE just go to XDA-DEVELOPERS web site and look for a cooked ROM to replace the one on this phone. My TILT has the PHOENIX 2.3 ROM and I never had to upgrade to TILT 2 as I had the same features already.

true... just like the cyanogenmod and others that cooked up some 2.1 goodness for the good ol G1's still floating around out there, works great on mine... they have some pretty good stuff there if you don't mind throwing your warranty to the wind and going all in with some rom swapping good times lol and a high five to those out there with abilities far beyond mine that set up dual boots for android on windows and apple devices... cheers to you my friends for working outside the box

Actually, with Windows OS, you can unlock and lock your phone at will - warranty will never know. My TILT is network unlocked and SUPERCID unlocked, meaning it will allow alterations to the existing ROM. I can then reverse the process and no one will know. Now, if you get that tri-colored boot screen, you mayhave bricked it, but they have on that site many tutorials on how to still bring your phone back "from the dead." Once I get an ANDROID phone from AT&T I will do the same with it....unless I get EVO 4G.

All they have to say is EVO 4G baby lol. The legend is the continuation of the Hero line, which was a pretty successful phone for Sprint. The EVO 4G is going to be the next touch screen only phone for Sprint, and theyll bring in Lotus Elite and Rumor touch for medium range phones.
