HTC Legend, Desire & HD Mini Get UK Release Dates

by | Go to comments


Alongside Windows Phone Series 7, HTC's new handsets were arguably the highlight of Mobile World Congress and now we know when you'll be able to get them...

Amazon has pulled a fast one ahead of an official release and put up 1 April launch dates for the Desire and Legend and 14 April for the HD Mini. This is a few weeks later than we had hoped for, but you may need this extra time.

Why? Sadly because the RRPs are hefty. Amazon lists the HD Mini at a sizeable £369, the beautifully made Legend at £399 and the stunning Desire at a massive £528. This doesn't bode well when you consider a Nexus One - virtually the same as a Desire, minus the Sense UI - comes in at just £349. This is a substantial saving, even allowing for a large import tax.

Consequently you may want to have a re-read of my Desire, Legend and HD Mini guides before making a decision to go sim free. On the other hand, if subsidies are generous then perhaps those imposing 18 and 24 month contracts may not prove so scary after all...
