Cellular South has announced the plans to launch HTC Merge, its first Android world phone. Merge will also be the first device that will come pre-loaded with Amazon Appstore for Android.
“We’re excited to add our first Android world phone to Cellular South’s growing suite of Android smart phones and tablets as we continue to build on our promise to deliver the wireless industry’s best Android experience,” said Kevin Hankins, chief operating officer for Cellular South. “Coupled with the new Amazon Appstore for Android, the HTC Merge is the perfect device for customers who are looking for a reliable mobile experience with the features and functionality of a smart phone, whether it’s at home or traveling around the world.”
HTC Merge features a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard, Android 2.2 with HTC Sense user interface, 3.8-inch touchscreen display and a 5 megapixel camera.
The HTC Merge will be available next month. Pricing for the device has not been set, but will require a two-year service contract and data agreement.
