Hot on the heels of Virgin Mobile Canada launching the HTC Legend, Canada's Bell launched the HTC Legend for $79.95 CDN with a three year contract or $399.95 CDN to buy outright. Additionally, some online retailers are selling unlocked versions of the HTC Legend with North American friendly 850 / 1900MHz 3G bands for $498.50 before shipping and taxes.
Engadget wrote that "Negri Electronics has an 850 / 1900MHz 3G Legend in its store for a shade under $500, which means you're not getting much of a discount over the more powerful 850 / 1900MHz version of the Nexus One", but for a fan of the Legend's design, this may be the day you were waiting for.
BoyGeniusReport notes that the major difference between Virgin Mobile's offer and Bell's offer "is that the Bell Legend goes for $399.99 off contract while the Virgin model goes for $349.99 with a 30-day commitment."
Unfortunately for future sales figures of the handset, with news of the HTC Desire heading to some regional carriers yesterday, interest for the handset is likely falling somewhat.
