The HTC Legend has arrived, and we’re the first to bring you an unboxing video and first impressions of one of the most anticipated smartphones from MWC 2010 last month. Over at SlashGear we’ve been busily tearing the unibody Legend from its packaging to check out whether it’s a suitable successor to the Hero.

You certainly can’t argue with the build quality, which is a step above the Hero’s plastic casing.  The unibody aluminum shell manages to feel both sturdy and tactile, while the AMOLED display – although not quite as eye-catching as the Nexus One’s expansive screen – is certainly bright and color-saturated.
