Feeling flush and reasonably patient?  The HTC Legend and Desire, announced this week at Mobile World Congress 2010, have shown up for preorder at online retailer Expansys UK, complete with an expected Monday April 12th release date. The Legend, which has a 3.2-inch HVGA AMOLED touchscreen, milled aluminum body and 5-megapixel camera, is priced at £399.99 ($627), while the HTC Desire, which has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen and is basically HTC's own-brand version of the Google Nexus One, is priced at £449.99 ($706). Both are sold unlocked and SIM-free; HTC told us at the launch event that just about all of the carriers in the target markets for the two devices were interested in offering both smartphones, so if you're willing to sign up to a contract you can likely get one far cheaper upfront.
