HTC Desire Z to join Verizon’s Droid lineup this holiday season

The HTC Lexikon Merge that appeared last week in a leaked ROM is back once again in some new pictures posted over at BGR. The HTC Merge We have yet to learn the final product name, but this HTC device (model ADR6325) looks like it will join Verizon’s Droid family with its familiar black and red styling.

Specs wise, this phone is shaping up to be an exact clone of the HTC Desire Z, better known as the T-Mobile G2 here in the United States. Verizon’s version will feature the same second-generation 800 MHz Snapdragon processor (MSM7630), 3.8 inch display, 5 megapixel camera, 4 GB of internal storage, and slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

While T-Mobile’s version will be blessed with stock Android 2.2, Verizon’s will sport the new HTC Sense experience which has been all Bing’d out like the Samsung Fascinate.

Just like the Droid 2 World Edition, the HTC Merge phone will also feature global roaming capabilities ( meaning it works on both CDMA and GSM networks).

No price point or launch date has been revealed yet, but look for the device to debut around $199 with 2-year contract and hit stores in late October to early November.

What Droid name do you think Verizon should give HTC’s new QWERTY slider?
