HTC's MWC 2010 press conference doesn't happen until tomorrow. But Android.MoDaCo.com went ahead and spilled the beans a day early, outing press photos and specs of HTC's three new devices: Desire, Legend, and Touch HD Mini

Desire, known to tech geeks as codename "Bravo" (pictured above), is the highest-end of the three new handsets, packing a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1 with HTC Sense out of the gate. The device is said to be 11.9mm thick and sporting a 3.7" WVGA resolution AMOLED touch display. Note also the optical trackpad where a trackball used to be. The trackball is dead, long live the optical trackpad.

The Desire spec sheet notes something called "Friend Stream," which makes me wonder if HTC went ahead and overhauled Sense for this release. Remember that like Motorola's MOTOBLUR, HTC Sense on Android is deeply integrated into the OS. So an HTC Sense device with Android 2.1 is most likely a device with version 2.1 of "Sense for Android," if that makes sense.

Next up is Legend, something of the successor to last year's Hero. Legend features aluminum unibody construction, Android 2.1 with Sense, and a 600 MHz processor. You'll get a 3.2" HVGA touchscreen here, along with that optical pad. Friend Stream is also listed in Legend's specs.

And last but not least is the Touch HD Mini. No specs to be found, but it sure looks like a shrunken down version of Touch HD. You might be wondering why. I say, "Little phones you can use with one hand are awesome! So long as you have really sharp eyes."

More on these new HTC's, if in fact they're real, as we get it. And remember, all shall be revealed at HTC's press conference Tuesday. Mean time, full specs and bigger photos available on Android.MoDaCo.
