HTC today announced the Merge, a new CDMA/GSM world phone that runs Android 2.2 and has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for messaging. The Merge has HTC's Sense user interface overlay and offers a 3.8-inch touch display, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and 720p HD video capture, GPS and Wi-Fi. HTC didn't say which carriers would offer, but specified that North American operators would sell the Merge, which it says is its first CDMA world phone, this spring. Both Verizon Wireless and Sprint have offered dual-mode CDMA/GSM world phones in the past.
