Hugh Hefner: Playboy coming to iPad in March, uncensored

@hughmcook Playboy on iPad will be uncensored, Hugh.

This is not the magazine’s first attempt to take advantage of the digital lifestyle consumers are embracing.

The HTC Legend has made another pre-announcement appearance, this time appearing in full marketing regalia on a dutch website. According to Dutch wireless carrier KPN, the Legend is expected to debut in March with a list of specs that are relatively bland. Similar to previously leaked live shots, the Legend will sport a form factor that resembles the GSM Hero with an optical trackpad instead of a trackball, a slight chin, and a sleek looking unibody aluminum frame. The remaining specs include a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive 320×480 touchscreen display, Qualcomm MSM7727 600MHz processor, 5.0 megapixel camera with LED flash, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and Android 2.1 with Sense UI. Look for the Legend to become official next week during MWC 2010. More →
