Today Canadian readers will probably be glad to hear that Virgin Mobile customers will be able to get their hands on the HTC Legend, however if you prefer Bell you will not have to wait too long as it will be available from June 16th.
Just to recap the HTC Legend is a pretty desirable smartphone, it features a 3.2 inch capacitive display (320x 480), a 5 megapixel camera, 600MHz processor, Android 2.1, HTC Sense UI, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity. It also features a microSD memory card slot which supports memory cards of up to 32GB.
Today Virgin Mobile are offering the HTC Legend for $79.99 as part of a 3-year agreement, alternatively you can purchase the Legend on a month-to-month basis for $349.99, however if you live in Manitoba or Saskatchewan the Legend is not available due to “network differences”.
Currently we cannot confirm how much Bell will be offering the handset for, however I doubt they will offer the handset any cheaper than Virgin’s $79.99 as part of a 3-year agreement pricing, especially as the iPhone 3GS is currently priced at $199 as part as a 3-year deal.
Would you pay more for a Virgin Mobile HTC Legend?
