Remember the HTC Merge? Yeah, the one that HTC officially announced back in February. Well, it looks like it's finally available on Big Red today, but there's an interesting stipulation with this one: you won't actually find it in any Verizon Wireless store. According to an internal VZW document that fell into the hands of Android Central, you'll only be able to get a hold of this little gem at third-party retailers, like Best Buy.
We've haven't actually talked about the Merge in a while, so here's a quick refresher of the specs:
- 3.8 Inch Super-LCD
- Global Ready
- 800MHz Processor
- 512MB RAM
- 2GB Built-in storage, SD Card slot
- 5MP Camera with 720p video capture
- Full Slide-out QWERTY
- Bing (*scoff*)
- Android 2.2
Clearly this phone isn't going to break any records, but aside from the inclusion of Bing instead of Google, it seems like a pretty solid device.
