From the Droid Incredible to the Droid X, the line of Google Android smartphones with Verizon has really put the carrier back on the map with some of the coolest smartphones on this side of the planet. This seems to be continuing with the pending release of the HTC Lexikon.
As much as I like having a large touchscreen for movie-watching and web-surfing, I’m stil partial to devices with hardware keyboards. That’s partly why the Lexikon is a little more appealing, thanks to its (slide-out?) QWERTY keyboard, along with the 3.8-inch WVGA display.
Other specs include the 512MB RAM, MSM7630 chipset (800Mhz), Froyo, 5MP camera, HTC Sense 1.6, and 4GB of internal memory. It’s like getting the HTC Droid Incredible, but with a hardware keyboard.
It wasn’t all that long ago that the only “good” phones you could find with Verizon were those messaging phones with V CAST integration. Subscribers with Big Red saw greener pastures with the iPhone on AT&T, yearning for something better. And then the DROID invasion began and things have looked great since. The Lexikon looks pretty good to me.[
