HTC India has finally announced the availability of its much anticipated smartphone model ‘HTC Legend’ in India. The phone aims to take the Android experience to a whole new level with its improvised HTC Sense experience. The launch has taken place just few weeks after Motorola launched its bestseller phone Motorola Milestone and Sony Ericsson’s Xperia phones
The phone is based on Android Eclair 2.1 mobile operating system and comes loaded with a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 processor, 384MB RAM and 512MB ROM. The power packed mobile sports a 5 MP autofocus camera (2592×1944) with LED flash.

An interesting feature – When ringing, once the phone is picked up the ringer volume goes down on its own.
Now for the social networking buffs – HTC has introduced a new application and widget called, Friend Stream that integrates social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Flickr into an organized updates’ flowchart. With a unified updates’ page, it becomes much easier to keep a tab on what friends and family are up to. Moreover, Friend Stream allows categorization of contacts into groups such as friends, family, work, etc.
The new HTC Sense experience has also inculcated improvements in terms of applications like the browser, email client and others. The new Sense experience includes a newsreader application and widget, and a seven-screen ‘Leap’ thumbnail view for fast and easy access to specific screens as well.
With the kind of features that the Legend has, the pricing of the phone, Rs. 25,990, is really competitive in comparison to other smartphones in the Indian market
