New to Android. How to log out of Gmail?
Hi. My friend recently bought an HTC Legend. I was testing it out and as he doesn't have a Google account and I'm a Gmail user I logged in to get into the market.
Now I don't know how to log out as it pulled all my contacts and email. Something I don't want.
How do I logout so he can go back to using his phone and all my Google info is off the phone?

You'll probably have to do a reset to factory settings. It's not quite as simple as logging in and out, the account you specify when you start the phone for the first time becomes the "owner account". So, wipe the phone and do over.
There might be another way, but this is the impression I got of the whole first-run process.

SeeK is correct. Your gmail account (the one you setup the phone with) is linked to the phone. He will need to setup a gmail account. It can be a dummy account just to set the phone up but he will need one.
You should wipe the phone (factory reset).

Make sure you backup any important data before you reset. There are many threads in the forums about how to backup data.
