AT&T Rep: Two HTC Android Phones coming “soon or this summer”

After a recent conversation with an apparently well-informed AT&T sales representative, it appears all but certain that AT&T will soon carry two HTC Android devices.  It’s not clear which ones exactly; the rep claims that one of them is the HTC Hero, but it’s more likely that the HTC Legend, the Hero’s successor, will be arriving, as it’s already been spotted passing through the FCC in the correct 850/1900Mhz 3G frequencies.  He also confirmed, as widely speculated, that a new iPhone will arrive this June.  Regardless, it seems that we will be finding out more very soon!  View the full chat transcript after the break.

Thank you for your patience! An AT&T sales representative will be with you shortly.

You are now chatting with an AT&T sales representative.

AT&T: Welcome to AT&T online Sales support.  How may I assist you with placing your order today?

Me: Do you carry the HTC Pure new anymore? All I see is refurbished, there isn’t even a page for the new device.

AT&T: I will be happy to assist.

AT&T: HTC is coming out with new phones pretty soon.

Me: Will they be similar to the Pure?

AT&T: Better since they will have Android technology.

Me: Wow, that sounds great. Do you know if they will be touchscreen like the Pure, or have a keyboard?

AT&T: Touch screen.

Me: When might I expect to be able to get one? I’m looking to buy soon, but I could wait a few weeks

AT&T: Anytime now or summer.

Me: Sounds great. Thanks for the heads up. I just did a quick web search, would this happen to be one of the devices? http://pocketnow.com/tech-news/att-htc-pc70110-is-the-android-touch-pro2

AT&T: The Hero is one of them the second one we do not have official word yet.

Me: Would it possibly be the Legend or the Desire? I’m a little confused about the Hero, since that’s an older device, the Legend is basically the successor to it. So might they be the Legend and Desire?

AT&T: Maybe if you type upcoming phones to AT&T you may get additional information.

Me: So you cannot confirm if either the Legend or Desire are one of these devices?

AT&T: Not yet since we do not have official Information, we are getting a new iPhone by June.

Me: Just wondering do you know the date on that?

AT&T: By the end of June.

Me: Thanks

Me: Have a great day
