Vodafone To Sell HTC Desire And Legend Next Month

Vodafone has confirmed today that it will be stocking both the HTC Legend and the HTC Desire, therefore confirming its status as one of the most Android-friendly operators in the UK.

The firm is also set to get the Google Nexus One and the Sony Ericsson X10 soon. All the phones will come in April 2010 making next month one of the busiest release windows we've witnessed recently.

Vodafone has sold the HTC Magic in the past and is currently selling the HTC Tattoo, both of them Android models. Other mobile operators have also confirmed that they will be selling the HTC Desire but the Legend will be exclusive available on the red team.

Interested parties are encouraged to sign up to receive the latest updates as to when the phones will be available and on which tariffs. T-mobile is already taking pre-orders for the Desire starting from £30 per month with free internet, 600 minutes and unlimited texts.

All the mobiles, bar the Nexus One, were unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this month. Interestingly, the HTC Legend will come pre-loaded with a range of Vodafone 360 services but not its bigger brother the Desire.

Our Comments

The iPhone is going to have a very, very hard time competing against the likes of the HTC Desire or the Legend. Actually, we wonder whether HTC is not going to merge both smartphones to produce a truly formidable competitor to the next iPhone.
