HTC Legend and Desire up for pre-sale, ship date set for April 12
By now, we have all read up on the new HTC Legend and HTC Desire which were announced yesterday morning. A few carriers in Europe have signed up to launch the new handsets, but we have been waiting to find out how much these devices would cost and when they will be available to purchase. Thanks to the guys over at Expansys.com, the wait is now over. Both the HTC Legend and HTC Desire are available for pre-order on the Expansys site with an expected ship date of April 12th. On the U.S. site, the HTC Legend is listed for $619.99 and the HTC Desire is selling for $689.99 which is just slightly lower that the £399.99 and £449.99 respectively on the UK site.
Currently, only the UK site is listing a ship date for the HTC Desire and Legend. We’re waiting to get confirmation from them if the U.S. handset would be shipping on April 12th as well. The pricing on Expansys is typically right in the middle of what HTC handsets typically sell for. We can expect to see prices for both the Desire and Legend drop 5-10% when they go on sale through other websites.
