Although the eager hackers from XDA developers have already launched a Jelly Bean port for the Google / HTC Nexus One, the people behind CyanogenMod have recently announced that the first Nexus smartphone ever will not be officially compatible with Cyanogen versions beyond 7.x (Gingerbread). Unfortunately, there are also a bunch of other smartphones that won’t be getting official support for Cyanogen Mod 9+, namely almost all smartphones that are based on the first generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors (this translates into “all smartphones using a QSD8x50, MSM7x25, MSM7x27 or MSM7x27T SoC”). Some of the most popular smartphones based on the…

HTC has confirmed that it will be updating at least three of its Android smartphones, the Wildfire, Legend, and Desire, with Android 2.2 Froyo in Q3 of this year.  Android 2.2 will offer greatly increased speed for applications and web browsing due to a brand new “virtual machine” for apps and Javascript engine for the web browser. Apps will run 2 to 5 times faster than with Android 2.1, and the web browser’s Javascript support will be 2 to 3 times faster as well. Adobe Flash 10.1 (and Air) support will be included in the update. [via Mobile Burn]

The HTC Legend is now available for pre-order on Vodafone UK, and other websites operating as resellers for Vodafone. The website quite clearly states that if you pre-order yours today you should receive it first, and it is expected on 6 April, which is a Tuesday. It wouldn’t surprise me if this ended up hitting your pocket by Monday or earlier. Vodafone as pushing the fact there is ‘Adobe Flash’ for ‘great looking websites’. Want a phone you can make your own? Go for the HTC Legend. With up to seven home screens, there’s plenty of room to get things…

The Dutch version of the HTC Legend seems to be experiencing some problems in the Android Market and we’re not sure who is to blame. HTC have come right out and said that the restricted access to applications such as Skype and Layer is not their doing, putting the onus firmly with Google. Google are yet to release a formal statement, but it is probably unlikely that they are blocking these applications on purpose. The HTC Legend itself is an attractive piece of kit. “The sleek unibody design with a brilliant AMOLED display and a brushed metallic finish, feels great…

A variant of the HTC Legend was spotted as it made its way through the FCC recently. It was keen observation by the folks at Androphones that tipped them to the HTC Legend. They astutely noticed that the sketch of the label in the FCC documents exactly matches the FCC label on the leaked photos of the Legend that appeared last week. It is unmistakable as the label has a unique shape due to the unusual battery cover and unibody design of the Legend. Future Legend owners in the US should not start jumping for joy quite yet as this…
