HTC Legend, Desire and HD miniLegend, Desire or HD mini should be your questions in case you choose HTC. The three mobile devices had been presented by HTC during a press conference last week at MWC 2010, Barcelona.

Let’s begin with Legend, a model we’ve previewed last December in one of our post, discovering all of his features, but this was not official as it was at MWC. Made of a single piece of aluminium, the Legend phone has an AMOLED display with 16 M colors. It features an optical trackball, under the display and a 5 megapixel camera, on the back.

The processor is clocked at 600 Mhz and supports the Android™ 2.1 platform (Éclair) with HTC Sense. The storage has 384 Mb(RAM) and 512 Mb(ROM) which can be extended through microSD card slot, up to 32GB. Connectivity offers Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, Gprs, MicroUSB and the Li-Ion battery has 1300 mAh.

Enough with Legend, next is Desire.

Desire model is one the biggest mobile phone released by HTC on the market. It comes with an 3.7-inches AMOLED touchscreen and 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor(same as Nexus One). The operating system is the same as Legend, Android™ 2.1. Under the display there are 4 buttons and in the middle, is situated a trackpad. The back camera has 5 megapixel and the battery is an Li-Ion one with 1400 mAh. Internal memory has 512 Mb, the RAM one 576 MB and the connectivity options stays the same from Legend.

The last, but not the poorest model presented by HTC at MWC 2010 was the HD mini one.

As design HD mini is the smallest version of HD 2 model and comes with a 2.7-inches touchscreen. The processor has 600 Mhz and features Windows Mobile 6.5 version for operating system with HTC Sense user interface(UI). The back camera is the same, 5 megapixel as well as the connectivity features, but the battery is a Li-Ion one with 1200 mAh.
