Mobile-phone carrier Vodafone UK seems set to bring as many Android-based handsets as possible to its customers. Among them, we can count the Nexus One by HTC, a device that will be sold exclusively via Google's web store, as well as the HTC Desire and Legend, two Android 2.1-based phones unveiled officially last month during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Both the HTC Desire and HTC Legend are now listed on Vodafone UK's website
in the coming soon section, and the wireless carrier notes that they are set to become available for purchase as soon as April. For what it's worth, this is in line with the previous rumors we've heard on the devices' launch. Vodafone
will also launch the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 in April, expanding its Android offer with yet another highly appealing mobile phone.
Considering that all of these phones are very appealing, it should be very interesting to watch how they perform on the market. The Nexus One
and HTC Desire are basically the same device, at least when it comes to the hardware specs they include. However, the Desire is packed with HTC's Sense experience, something that Nexus One, which is sold exclusively by Google on other markets too, does not have.
The second HTC Android phone Vodafone will launch in April, the Legend
, is also a very interesting and appealing device. It comes with a body made of a single piece of aluminum, and is expected to sport a rather affordable price tag. While Nexus One and Desire are aimed at the high-end of the market, the Legend has been designed to fit in the mass-market segment, though still boasting high-end features and capabilities.
For the time being, Vodafone hasn't unveiled the exact release dates for the two HTC Android-based phones, but it shouldn't be too long before it does so. Moreover, details on the price tags of these handsets lack as well, though there are great chances that they will be offered for free on certain monthly plans from the carrier. Stay tuned for additional info on the matter.
