HTC has officially outed a pair of new color options for their much-loved Desire and Legend smartphones. We've already played with the brilliant white HTC Desire, but now there's a rather nice phantom black HTC Legend to go with it. Both handsets are functionality identical to the previous versions, so you get Android 2.2 and HTC Sense on both, while the Legend has a 3.2-inch display and the Desire a 3.7-inch display. Both will be available across Europe this month. Press Release:
