Cellular South to preload Amazon Appstore on HTC Merge

updated 06:55 pm EDT, Tue March 29, 2011

First device to ship with new app portal

Celluar South has announced that it is set to ship HTC's Merge handset preloaded with Amazon's Appstore app. Although the device is already confirmed for a separate launch through Alltel, the Cellular South offering notably represents the first Android device to be paired with Amazon's app portal as a preloaded addition to the basic features.

The Merge is equipped with a relatively midrange set of smartphone features, including an 800MHz Snapdragon processor, 3.8-inch touchscreen, and a five-megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p video. Users can also take advantage of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard or dual-mode functionality on CDMA and GSM networks.

Cellular South promises the Merge to ship next month. Pricing has yet to be announced, though it will likely be close to Alltel's $125 option.
