HTC Merge preview and benchmark

Today’s a relatively slow news day so I’m going to post some HTC Merge related sotries here. The HTC Merge (also know as the HTC Lexikon) is the Dual-mode (GSM-CDMA) version of the HTC Desire Z launching on Verizon in the coming weeks. AndroidCentral managed to scoop one of the devices and posted a quick preview which also includes a video of the device’s 800Mhz MSM7630 chipset being benchmarked. The Adreno 205 GPU can be seen crunching out some really nice numbers which is nice to see but probably a little bit depressing if you are planning on getting a Windows Phone 7 device this fall (All WP7 devices are rumored to have the QSD8250 chiosetwiththe rgular Adreno 200 GPU).

Unfortunitelly the Merge (like all of Verizon’s Android letely) replaces Google Search and Maps with Microsoft’s Bing Search and Bing Maps…
