Vodafone UK have already confirmed that the Google Nexus One is arriving soon, and now the carrier has announced that it will be offering HTC’s two latest Android smartphones come April. The HTC Legend – which will be an exclusive to Vodafone UK – and the HTC Desire will both drop next month.
Pricing for the two handsets is yet to be officially confirmed, though we’re guessing Vodafone will end up offering them free on at least a few high-end plans. The Legend has a 3.2-inch HVGA AMOLED touchscreen while the larger Desire has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen; both run Android 2.1 with HTC’s Sense UI enhancements.
