So far this year, HTC has been pretty focused on their One line-up of Android handsets, at least for Canada. The line-up includes the One X, which Rogers currently offers, as well as the One S and One V. The One V is currently available from Bell, and the One S is expected to hit multiple carriers.

The HTC One S features a 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It comes with a secondary VGA front-facing camera, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The One S is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB internal storage.

The One V features a 3.7? (480 x 800) touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. It?s powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, and comes with 4 GB of internal memory. What is particularly appealing about this Android 4.0 ICS handset is its unibody construction, similar to the HTC Legend that was known as a pretty tough device.

Unfortunately, pricing is not confirmed as of yet. What we can let you know, thanks to internal documents leaked online, is that both are planned for launch on May 17th. Additional support for that timeframe is the fact that dummy units have been received by numerous stores. Given the specifications, we can expect the One V to come in at a relatively affordable price, while the One S will probably be comparable to other higher end Android handsets. Stay tuned, we?ll let you know as soon as pricing can be confirmed!

According to recently leaked information, Bell is getting set to add the Android powered HTC One V to their line-up on May 3rd. The One V, which is significantly different than the One X that Rogers carries, features a uni-body design, similar to the HTC Legend. Other features include its 3.7? (480 x 800) touch screen display and 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p video recording. This ICS handset is powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, and comes with 4 GB of internal memory.

While nothing has been confirmed regarding pricing for, this device is expected to come in at a fairly affordable cost of around $300 outright. Information found online also points to the handset coming to Telus as well, possibly on the same date.

Great news for Virgin Mobile customers who own an HTC Legend came through today, as the Android OS 2.2 Froyo update is now officially available. The update, which can be downloaded/installed OTA (over the air) is available now, and can be accessed by going to Settings, About phone, and then choosing Software update.

The update brings a slew of features and improvements to the Legend, including Adobe Flash 10.1, a revamped UI, and the ability to install applications to external memory(microSD card). Remember to connect to Wi-Fi before performing the update, and while your applications and content should be preserved, backing up important items is always a good idea. HTC Legend users, you can now begin enjoying Froyo!

With Android 2.3 Gingerbread rolling out to the Nexus One in the coming weeks, many Canadians who own other Android-powered smartphones are left wondering when they'll see upgrades, at least to 2.2 Froyo, for their devices. While not every handset will be getting future updates, the HTC Legend from Virgin Mobile is confirmed to be getting 2.2 Froyo, which is expected to launch in mid-January. No word yet on the Bell version of the HTC Legend, but odds are that the update will be available at the same time.

According to recently leaked internal screenshots, Bell will be launching the BlackBerry Bold 9780 refresh device on November 2nd, though no official public announcement has been made as of yet. Virgin Mobile was apparently set to launch the device on October 21st, but since the website hasn't been updated as of yet, we're assuming the date has been pushed back at least a little bit. It would be surprising, however, if Virgin did launch the Bold refresh device a little bit sooner than parent-company Bell, as we saw this happen with the HTC Legend recently. To recap on the Bold 9780's specifications, it will launch running BlackBerry 6 OS, and comes with a 5MP camera, though nearly all other aspects are basically identical to the Bold 9700 BlackBerry users have come to know and love.

HTC has recently unveiled two new Android powered devices in London - the HTC Desire HD and the Desire Z. The Desire HD features an aluminum body similar to that of the Legend, along with a 4.3" LCD display, 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and a 1GHz processor. The Desire Z has more of a unique design, featuring a pop hinge that opens a full horizontal QWERTY keyboard. This handset also features a 5MP camera, 720p HD video recording, and an 800MHz processor.

Apparently these handsets will be available in October on certain carriers in Europe and Asia, with launches in North America planned for later this year. No word yet on pricing or further availability information, but we'll be sure to let you know if any more information is made available!

Apparently due to supply constraints, Bell has officially discontinued the HTC Legend from it's handset line-up. No information is available on exactly what sort of constraints are the cause, and there's been nothing released stating Virgin Mobile would be effected. While the HTC Legend's physical design is unique and and positively received, there are superior Android handsets available from a specifications point of view.

Virgin Mobile has launched a promotion for those thinking about signing up for their newly introduced SuperTab, a new handset payment option that allows users to pay off devices without having to sign contracts. The promotion, which expires on August 31st, offers up anybody who signs up a $50 accessory credit.

The SuperTab can now be used to purchase any device, and they've eliminated 2 year contracts almost entirely. Remember that Virgin recently launched the iPhone 4, BlackBerry Curve 9300, and less-recently the HTC Legend, so this might be the perfect opportunity to pick up a new phone.

In a statement made by HTC recently, information was provided regarding models such as the Legend, Desire, and Wildfire receiving updates to Android 2.2 Froyo beginning in Q3 this year. Froyo, which features Flash support and a faster, snappier OS overall, will make a great addition to the Bell/Virgin HTC Legend, and likely upcoming Telus HTC Desire, though launch dates for the updates typically get pushed back at least a few times before becoming official.

Last week, Virgin Mobile launched the HTC Legend ahead of it's parent company - Bell, at price points of $79.99 on a 3 year term or 30-day pricing of $349.99. Bell has finally launched the highly anticipated Android handset as well, with the same 3 year pricing of $79.95, but contract-free pricing seeing a $50 increase over Virgin's 30-day option, coming in at $399.95.

The HTC Legend features Android 2.1, a durable aluminum unibody casing, AMOLED touchscreen, and 5MP camera, along with standard smartphone connectivity such as 3G, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS.
