HTC Legend gets a Firmware Update


HTC has released a firmware update for the HTC Legend to fix some problems users have been experiencing.  Apparently, The HTC Legend would not show all the available applications in the Android Market, and it had something to do with applications gaining access to the camera.  Weird huh?  What does camera access have to do with the Android Market?

I took this from the HTC Support Site.
