HTC Merge Now Official: Latest Offering Due Spring

With their impeccable list of devices like the Desire 2 and the Flyer HTC never seems to stop astounding us, their next release in this impressive arsenal is sure to set tongues wagging and jaws dropping. The HTC Merge has now become official and it looks like this latest offering could be hitting us by spring.

This handset has taken so long to get to this stage that many people out there thought it had been cancelled, when released this will become the company’s first Android based CDMA world phone. This means it will work on the CDMA network and can quickly switch over to GSM when being operated overseas, with a feature like this the device is expected to hit multiple North American carriers upon release.

Not only boasting these worldwide roaming capabilities the Merge also packs quiet a punch when it comes to its spec list, this piece of kit houses a 5MP camera, 720p HD video capture, 3.8inch WVGA touch screen as well as a slide out QWERTY keyboard.

Even though this device has just been announced we expect that it would do really well on the current Smartphone market, we found this forum where other people seem to have a different opinion on this handset.

Judging by previous handsets both Android and HTC seem like a match made in heaven, it’s like having peanut butter and jelly great by themselves but put them together and it’s a whole new amazing experience.

    Why in the world would HTC restrict the network swapping only when it leaves American shores? Why not allow Straight talk to have a go with it, seein that they have access to both networks in the US. It would be the perfect solution to not being able to get signal – you'll have the choice of both networks at any given time.
