HTC Desire, Legend and HD Mini – three handsets which wowed the crowds at this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona – have been given UK release dates and pricing, pointing to a spring launch for the trio.

Both the HTC Desire and Legendcome packing Android 2.1 and are already destined to be contenders for the best phones of the year.

The HTC HD Mini is a Windows Mobile 6.5.3 phone which, as its name suggests, is a smaller version of the HD2 and comes brandishing a 5MP camera and Sense UI overlay.
