Rumor: HTC Desire heading to AT&T, and Legend to Sprint

HTC DesireWell, apparently no one can be trusted when it comes to company executives. If this rumor turns out to be true, then it looks like HTC’s two latest and greatest Android-based devices, both of which are rocking the new Sense UI, are coming over the pond after all. And, it looks like AT&T might be getting something more than just a Backflip. According to a source speaking with Boy Genius Report, the HTC Desire is heading over to AT&T, and for the most part it’s keeping its aesthetics in place. The source did say some color changes might be happening, but for the most part the device itself would be staying the same. And, yes, apparently Google is still planning on releasing a Nexus One that’s primed to function on AT&T’s 3G network, but, let’s be serious here . . . Who will want it? Considering the Desire is the same device with Sense on top of the OS, it looks like the Nexus One will be forgotten about in no time. Especially considering the source is saying the Desire will be out with the AT&T logo by May or June.

HTC LegendAnd, the HTC Legend is apparently making its way to Sprint. It’s going to take on a different name (the HTC Hero2, has a ring to it, right?), and it’s going to take on a bigger face-lift. This is probably due to the fact that, compared to the European HTC Hero of last year, Sprint’s version definitely got a redesign. The source hadn’t seen what the final product looked like. And, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the Source provided any kind of release date for the Legend. This is some pretty crazy news, so we’ll keep our eyes open if anything gets updated.
