Definitely looks interesting! I still love the design, build quality and form factor of my Legend (now on CM7 though). Everything bigger than 4" seems too big for me anyway.
Now after 2 years I'm also ready to invest again and upgrade, but I'm just not sure yet, if this device HTC One V doesn't fall a bit short for a 2012 device that should last me also 2 years.
- 512MB RAM only, seriously? Only because the original Legend had less RAM than its competitors doesn't mean you have to do the same mistake again, right?
- TFT instead of Amoled? Gotta check that out hands-on first.
- Trackball gone, why? That alone kept me using my Legend until now, as I'm extensively working with SMS/Whatsapp/Web Forms and so on.
- Front Facing Camera, no mention of this one?
- Removable Battery, I can't count, how many times I had to pull the battery on my Legend over the years, but a software solution for a reset is not attractive to me. Also, my original battery gives me now a maximum of 4 hours up-time after 2 years, if I can't change the battery on my next device I wouldn't buy it
Other than that....if the price is right....who knows, I might still grab one. Doesn't have to be the latest and greatest for me, after all it's just a phone.

Hmmm! Pre-Order price for the HTC One V at Expansys is about $394.....hmmmm!
GSMarena lists it without FFC. Radio seems to be gone as well.
So how about the battery? Did anyone read anything if it's removable?
