This year's Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona is shaping up to be the best yet. But with a rather mute response to Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Series announcement, it's taken another company to blow us away in the mobile phone stakes.

With new features like Helicopter mode – which allows you to see all eight home screens at one – the phone nails both functionality and cool.

The addition of an OLED screen (3.2-inch HVGA) adds some imaging sparkle to the device – and will be great for watching movies on.

There's a lot of linking going on in the HTC Legend. This includes the option of having all your social-networking feeds in one place. Like, you know, having all your friends in one room.
