HTC Lexikon spotted in the wild, Bing search includedAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Last week we saw a render of HTC's Lexikon for Verizon leak out and there was quite a bit of excitement surrounding the QWERTY-sporting, global-ready handset. Today that render has been one-upped, though, has the folks at Boy Genius Report have gone ahead and posted a whole gallery of photos of the device in the wild. The Lexikon is all black and running Android 2.2 along with a 5 megapixel camera, micro SD slot, and a SIM card slot for your globetrotting needs. All of those specs match up with a leak we saw in the past, so it looks likely that the rumored 3.8-inch 480x800 display and 800 MHz processor are also a go. Also of note is the Bing app on the home screen and the Bing search bar on a different screen. Looks like this HTC set is going to follow the same Bing-ified fate as the Samsung Fascinate.
There's no mention of the name "Lexikon" anywhere in the photos or on the device, just the model number ADR6325, so no one is quite sure what name is handset will have when it finally hits retail (the name Merge is being kicked around). Since it's sporting Bing search, I'm not sure that the ADR6325 will even earn the coveted DROID moniker upon release. We'll just have to wait and see. Regardless, I'd say this handset has all the makings of a big hit, including a big touchscreen, HTC Sense, and a great-looking physical QWERTY keyboard. Now that we've got photos of the ADR6325 in the wild, how many of you are going to pick one up?
