A new rumor that seems probable has hit BGR but we should warn you it’s still just a rumor: AT&T will be getting the HTC Desire in May or June and Sprint will be getting the HTC Hero 2, a revised version of the HTC Legend.
Google would still likely sell the Nexus One with AT&T compatibility on their new phones distribution site, but AT&T would also offer the HTC Desire with some different “finishing touches” in the looks department and of course a different name.
Meanwhile, Sprint will get the HTC Legend but call it the HTC Hero 2, continuing it as the sequel of sorts to their first HTC Hero. And like their first Hero, I’m guessing they’ll bring more brushed metallic modifcations but that’s just my guess – ya never know.
Does this make the AT&T and Sprint fans happy? I’m sure there are some out there who didn’t particularly enjoy the Motorola Backflip form factor glad to see this rumor in the mill.
