This is great! I'm actually going to be upgrading my phone to the HTC EVO in January, but was waiting for them to announce how much this slide version will cost? If it is the same price with 2 year eligible upgrade, I wonder if I should wait... Here's hoping the announce the price soon.
Here are the alleged specs:
-3.7" slider w/ WiMax
-Old Sense running 2.2 (based off of the ROM leak)
-CPU is NOT dual core and points to the current 2nd gen Snapdragon, probably the same 800 MHz one on the Desire Z / G2 -- this still makes it better than the EVO especialy GPU wise. This again comes from the ROM leak.
The thing is the HTC Merge is also said to be the same or similar phone to the Evo Shift 4G and it does have a little circle near the ear piece. It is for a light. I hope it is actually a camera for the Evo Shift but I am not getting my hopes up.
