The Telus HTC Triumph is just an HTC Legend running on Telus frequencies. ...
You may want to reference this statement. That is, previous posts referenced a webpage that stated the Triumph would have a high-res display and 1Ghz processor ... which is more in line with it being another version of the HTC Desire.

Telus will be releasing the HTC Desire, formerly named the Triumph.

Virgin released the HTC Legend a few days ago, Bell to follow.

Before you accuse others of misinformation, make sure that statement isn't hypocritical

I certainly hope Rogers gets the Incredible, especially how the iPhone 4 is like Windows Vista in terms of issues (read that in a blog) and Consumer Reports won't recommend the iPhone 4!

Rogers cannot carry the Incredible as it stands because Rogers doesn't have a CDMA network. HTC pumps out phones so quickly that it is much more likely they'll simply make a newer, better model with an HSPA radio than add one to the Incredible.

Even the blackberry on Bell can use 3G. Unless I am mistaken, most of the new phones that Bell and Telus have are HSPA and CDMA? I hope HTC makes something better than the Incredible soon, otherwise next year I will have to get the iPhone 5.

New Bell/Telus phones are almost all HSPA, not CDMA.

So CDMA is all but dead, much like digital was up until a few years ago on Rogers? And now there is no more digital or am I confusing digital with analog?

All cell phones are digital now and have been for quite a few years (whether it's CDMA, GSM, or HSPA).

All three carriers have dropped the old AMPS (Analog) networks. Rogers also dropped their first digital network (TDMA) a few years back.

All of Canada's carriers already have or are about to switch to HSPA networks, unless I'm missing a small regional somewhere. Bell/Telus launched their joint HSPA network on the same 850 frequency as Rogers, and MTS and SaskTel have either launched or are about to launch the same. The new carriers (Mobilicity, Wind, Shaw, and Videotron) are launching HSPA networks on the 1700 frequency. I don't know what Eastlink's plans are.

Bell/Telus still operate their CDMA networks but generally only for feature phones now. There is speculation that they may regulate them to discount brands. Public Mobile has launched a new CDMA network in Toronto and Montreal this year.

CDMA isn't quite dead, but it also isn't going to be a player for high-end smartphones in Canada.

Aside from the camera (and physical Back/Home/Search) buttons, the Desire is indeed very similar to the Incredible.

Looks like it will be a great option for Telus Mobility users.

Gotta say, nice to have multiple hspa providers around. even if they don't really compete, at least it brings more options for hardware to purchase. Awesome to see the Desire with NAM 3G becoming available. I wonder what a no-contract price will be.

Looks really good and all the reviews I have read were rated 9/10. Looks like my Hero with Android 1.5 is going to get replaced very soon

One note on the HTC Desire through Telus. If you were expecting the AMOLED display, read this: http://www.androidauthority.com/inde...ay-not-amoled/
It's coming with a Sony LCD display instead.
