HTC-Merge-450x450 HTC has announced the launch of Merge, their first global CDMA android device with slider QWERTY. This phone will be powered by Froyo and like all HTC devices, will have Sense UI on top of android. We do not have much information on hardware specification. Merge build quality looks top notch with probably, aluminum unit-body shell, has a 3.8” capacitive display with multi-touch, a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, 720p video recording. Given that this is a world phone, we think that this would probably make its way into Indian CDMA market as a carried independent device. Launch of this phone in the market will be in Spring 2011 to all USA carriers and the price is not known yet.
