Today seems to be the Legend’s 15 minutes of fame. We have received some anonymous information suggesting that VHA is launching the HTC Legend in black for both Vodafone and Three. It is due to be available this week. It was announced for Vodafone in Europe in October, so it makes sense for it to come here.

It will ship with Froyo pre-loaded, so no OTA or download of updates to get the frozen desert. Pricing is set to be the same as the current silver variant. Hit the break for the prepaid info.

Also along with todays news. The silver Legend is coming to Vodafone pre-paid. Launching at $349, this is for Vodafone only and is due to be available this week also. Three will not be getting the Legend on pre-paid, sorry Three customers.

Look out for it at your local VHA dealer soon. If anyone sees one black beauty in the wild, hit us up.

I saw it on sale at the listed price at Manly Vodafone, Sunday, 16 January.

It appears that HTC stalled on the 2.2 Froyo update for existing Legend owners until this Legend offer was released. If so, this is shitty! European Legend owners received 2.2 last October.

I think it would be fair to say that the Legend successor is just around the corner.

mwc was when the legend was announced, it would be very safe to say that this device will go end of life and a sucssor will emerge at mwc, perhaps with a msm 7320.

I have the silver one, and love it, but this black one looks AWESOME!

Too bad I won’t be getting it (since I already have the silver!)

Is $349 a good price for this device?

MobiCity are selling it for $449 unlocked. So yeah, it’s not too bad.

I’d agree, but Optimus One is only on prepaid at Crazy Johns – so inaccessible to most customers.
