My HTC One is the first Android phone that I have stuck with the original ROM for a prolonged period of time, which is remarkable given there’s even a ‘pure’ Android ROM available for it. In the past I’ve been happy to upload custom ROMs for my original HTC Hero, my Samsung Galaxy S II and even my Galaxy Nexus.

According to the HTC Twitter account (@htc) Vodafone will be releasing the HTC Legend on 3rd June and it will also be available on Three (but no date announced for that). Good news for the Aussie market. The HTC Legend is kind of the HTC Hero 2 but sadly will only have a 600Mhz CPU (hopefully this is wrong!). Also depends on if you like the ‘chin’ that comes with this model phone.  The Australian HTC site doesn’t have any more details other than ‘coming soon’, so head over the UK site and get y…
