AT&T Picking Up HTC Desire, Sprint Getting HTC Legend!!!??

February 23, 2010 2 comments

According to BGR, AT&T will be picking up the HTC Desire and it should be on shelves anywhere from May to June! This is great news for AT&T users wanting a big boy Android device. The Backflip is nice, but it is no HTC Desire. On the other side of the carrier battle, Sprint is said to be picking up the unibody sexiness of the HTC Legend and calling it the Hero 2. We don’t have a time frame for the Legend/Hero 2, so not sure if it will hit in fall like the original HTC Hero, or if it will drop in the summer. Either way this is great news for Android fans on both carriers!

HTC Adds Pinch to Zoom on Sense UI Home Screen

February 10, 2010 Leave a comment

Looks like HTC is not letting Android 2.1 have all the new pinch and zoom fun. HTCSource has a video of an HTC Hero running Sense 2.1 and showing off (poorly) the new pinch and zoom on the homescreen. It looks a lot like Palm’s Card view, but using multitouch to activate it. Check out the video below, jump about 6 minutes in to see the goods.

Sprint Gives Us an Update On Hero 2.1

January 29, 2010 Leave a comment


Sprint users have been hanging in there waiting for 2.1 while Droid and Nexus One users have been running around with the hottness for weeks (yes I know the Droid is 2.0 Vic, close enough). Well Sprint has released a statement to reassure us that everything is on track and testing is going well. Below is the quote.

“A while back we announced our plans to update our Android devices to 2.1 in the first half of 2010. I just wanted to follow up with a quick status. The 2.1 update is currently being tested and things are going very well so far. We’re still targeting the first half of 2010 and if things continue to go smoothly we should have the update well within that time frame. I’m sure there will be a lot of questions about procedures and more exact time-frames but for now I won’t be able to say much more. I just wanted you all to know that things are still on track.”
