As usual, there’s plenty of different handsets the Merge could be. It makes it hard to guess when we know about plenty of other devices heading to the market soon enough, and there’s just one out there, without any real defining feature list or images, that alludes us. This month, it’s the Merge. Manufactured by HTC, with a model number ADR6325, the Merge is a mystery wrapped in an enigma.
When Phandroid got a tip that the device with the model number and name appeared in a Verizon database somewhere, people got pretty excited. Especially knowing what’s coming to Verizon in their Android line-up later this year, the possibilities for that device to feature a 10MP camera on the back and a bunch of other goodies, while launching on the largest wireless carrier here in the United States is pretty exciting. That being said, we still don’t know what it is — a tablet? Maybe. A smartphone/superphone? It’s certainly possible.
Softpedia saw the device pop up again on radar, with the same ADR6325 model number, but this time over at the Global Certification Forum. With it, a few more details were released: this version, at least, is coming with quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, with single band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at the 2100MHz frequency. That means this one’s heading for Asia or Europe. Or maybe both.
As you might expect, the speculation follows closely. Is this the Asian version of the Desire HD or Desire Z? Or is this something completely different? So many questions, and yet there’s not enough information to tell us any answers quite yet. As many times as this guy has popped up recently, we’re sure it’s only going to pick up the pace, so stay tuned. Something will turn up soon enough.[via Softpedia]
