We don’t have long to wait before this gets official so lets hope details like carrier, price and all those goodies are on the way. I think rather than naming this phone the “Legend”… a “Super Hero” name would have applied better.

  1. It looks decent…droid is still wayyyy better :)

  2. Is 600MHz even enough any more?
    Whilst I appreciate that the low-end Android-based devices won’t have top notch hardware, those low-end devices also shouldn’t be running Android 2.1, in my opinion.

    I guess this one has just been in development for a while, but so far as I’m concerned, it’s time for all new, high-end Android phones to have a 1GHz processor.

  3. Khalid, heard of the Desire?

  4. @Khalid
    Enough any more? If 2.1 is more optimized than say, 1.6, then, yeah, you could argue that you can get the same results with a slower processor.

  5. I was also disappointed to see 600MHz on this.

    But WOW this thing is sexy-looking.

  6. The specs are fine but it’s still ugly!

  7. @CJ
    That’s a BEAUTIFUL phone, what are you talking about??? If you don’t like shiny chrome, silver, and graphite black, then you must not be much of a gadget guy. heh

    But, man, if this had snapdragon …

  8. I really like this this phone! Great looks and very nice specs, not as good as the Bravo or the nexus one, but I think that if the phone was more powerfull, I couldn’t have bought it. You can put everything on a phone, and all top of the line hardware, but you still need to be able to pay for it. If the bravo isn’t to expensive though, I will buy that one.

  9. very nice looking, wish it was a little faster, but damn, thats one hot phone.

  10. The screen needs to be a little bigger (going down to the buttons) and they should use the original tray style for this phone… the Sense UI one doesn’t seem to fit (at least imo)

  11. Does it has IM Yahoo Messenger or something? I didn’t see it. I want to use IM, but I dont know how.
    If someone know, plz help me or Email to me.
    Thank you!
