Verizon HTC Merge Android 2.2 Phone Previewed on Video

October 13, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The HTC Merge, the Android handset which is expected to be coming to Verizon Wireless, has been caught on video. The video, which comes to us courtesy of Android Central, lets us do a quick walkthrough of the hardware and software of the device.

The device, which is also known as Lexikon, was revealed a lot of times before. But this time we have what looks to be the first hands-on video of the device.

The HTC Merge, which runs Android 2.2 “Froyo”, will not come pre-installed with the latest version of HTC Sense. But it might be included before the launch of the device. Bing is present, as expected, and is integrated throughout like many of Verizon’s lineup of Droid devices. Android Central seems to be impressed by the build quality of the device since they are saying that the handset feels very comfortable in the hand.

There will also be a 5 megapixel camera, a sliding QWERTY keyboard and HD video recording. Earlier it was mentioned that the device also features an SLCD WVGA display, global roaming capabilities, 3.5mm headset jack, 800MHz processor and a MicroSD card slot.

It is expected that the device will be a really solid Android offering when it launches later this year.

Check out the hands-on video.
