Verizon is apparently set to introduce the HTC Droid Merge later this week. This high-end Android OS model with a sliding keyboard has not yet been officially announced, but details have been leaking out for months.
On Thursday, Verizon and HTC are holding an event in a club in Seattle to “celebrate the launching of the HTC Droid Merge World-Phone”.
The Droid Merge will supposedly include 3.8-inch WVGA (800 x 480) touchscreen as well as the standard set of control buttons. Like many HTC models, this one will apparently eschew a D-pad.
On this inside, this smartphone will run Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) on an 800 MHz processor, and sport 512 MB of RAM, according to leaked descriptions. HTC Sense 1.6 will overlay the standard user interface.
It will also allegedly include a 5 megapixel camera and 4 GB of internal storage.
The launch event announcement confirmed that this device will be a worldphone, capable of using Verizon ‘s CDMA network in the U.S. as well as the GSM networks in Europe, Asia, and beyond.
