Let's hope that it will be an LTE phone. I'd like this phone to last me more then 2 months before becoming outdated.

Any idea if and when this might come to Verizon? I'm having some second thoughts about the Samsung Fascinate.....bing/ VZW apps seem to mess this phone up? I need to have turn by turn nav. that is included and GOOD.

Also says the Fascinate will be released in mid-to-late October, which is untrue; and has a different spot for both "Droid 2 world" and "Droid Pro" but from recent reports, these are the same thing. I wouldn't read too much into that posting.

I was hoping to pick this up if it is released in the next month or two but now i've read this: Verizon Launching LTE in 30 “NFL Cities” Before 2011 | Android Phone Fans

This may force me to wait for the new LTE offerings considering I live in an NFL city.

Android Guys seem to have it about right about the Merge/Lexikon. The only thing they're really missing is it's a global phone. But it's definitely Bing'd up like the Facinate.

The other HTC device that looks like the Evo, I have no info.

Wait, so what was pictured and labeled as the HTC Merge isn't, and is actually the Lexikon? And the Evo-looking phone with the kickstand is actually a different phone all-together?

I think the Lexikon IS the Merge. I don't believe they are difference devices. The Merge is the ADR6325.

And yes, the Evo'ish phone is a completely separate device. Haven't heard anything about that.

Personally I'm kind of happy the EVO type phone isn't the merge. I already have the Incredible and don't want to have to change phones until LTE is launched. Since the other phone is the Merge, that means this EVO one might likely be the first LTE phone that HTC releases for Verizon. HTC CEO stated they would be releasing their first LTE device in Q1 2011, possibly earlier if they move fast enough.

Not sure if any of you guys were on here when all the Droid Incredible investigative work went down, but I figured I'd start a little something for this phone.

IMAG0002 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
That is a picture taken with the Merge. This user (fly_mrs) is the same HTC tester who tested the Droid Incredible, and was posting pictures taken with the Incredible (which later, all got deleted - assuming after the testing is done). There are a few more pictures in her photostream, I just linked the first one.

Since it has Bing on it, does this mean it won't be part of Verizon's Droid line of phones...which seem to be it's higher end models?

I for one am hoping they drop the Bing bs and name this something after the Incredible. It basically looks like an Incredible with a slide-out keyboard. And that means I WANT. Not if it's going to be a downgrade from the Incredible, though.

Couldn't the bing issue simply be that the Bing app is installed since its on the homescreen like that?

Well that clears it up haha thanks NKT

Kind of disapointing but can always be removed eventually I guess. But that most likely means it is not a DROID branding then?

And anyone know anything about a timeframe for release?

I have a Droid X but really like the look of the keyboard and the fact that its not locked down completely (well hoping its not, given htc usual stance) so may be looking to make a swap some how if it can come out when my Droid Xstill has decent value for resell

Looks like the Evo-ish device is not the Merge if that is what you were thinking. The Merge is more of a Verizon/World edition of the the Desire Z

I don't buy the bing on lower-mid phones. This is basically the G2 for VZW and its specs are great. I'm going to be terrible disappointed if all the droids are binged.

I agree this is not a low/mid range phone it is up there at the same/above level of the incredible and Droid2 even close to Droid X

It's running a 800mHz processor, at least according to Quadrant. What this means as far as overclocking, I don't know.

It may be a snapdragon, but Quad only reports it running @ 800. I'll see if I can get some info.

I'm really hoping its the newer

MSM7630 800 MHz with Adreno 205 graphics
45 nm
2nd Gen Snapdragon

Wikipedia says its used in the HTC Lexikon, but I don't take that as solid confirmation lol

Two questions about this phone. I'm coming from a BB (Storm 1- uggh). First since it only has a 800 mHz processor, will it support Gingerbread and second since it only come with 2GB memory is that a concern (I read that after the OS and the bloat you are down to about 300-400 MB)

You mean this phone? The Merge/Lexicon?

I'd say it will be a stellar device. Just imagine the Inc, Evo, or G2 (w/ sense). The only downside to me, is Bing. I dont want to have to root my phone to get rid of it.

I agree but knowing HTC I'd probably root just to have the customs roms that will inevitable follow. I would root just to put on a port of the new sense.

But my dilemma is I have the Droid X and have had it since it launched so I am outside the window of 30days but really don't know if I can go without a keyboard and would really like one. But I honestly just want a Droid X with a keyboard and feel like this phone would be a small downgrade from the X

I don't see why people keep calling this (and the Fascinate) a mid range phone because of its 800mhz processor, though the Fascinate has a 1ghz. The 800mhz is actually faster than the previous Snapdragon 1gz. It's like comparing a P4 3.6ghz to a Core2Duo 2.6. The Core2Duo is actually faster despite the ghz rating. That actually scares me because Bing is rumored to only be on mid range phones, not the high end. So unless Verizon is going to release some super duper phones after this one (that blow this out of the water), looks like Bing can make it to any phone.

But back to what you were saying, the only downgrade there would be is screen size (I assume), and your preference of NinjaBlur to Sense.

The HTC Merge is Verizon, Alltel, and US Cellular's version of the Desire Z, but it's been a bumpy ride from rumored to store shelves. It was finally available via smaller carriers as early as May 2011 after HTC officially announced its exi... Read More
