HTC Merge from early this year, when it was announced in February and briefly stopped by the FCC with Verizon bands. While a few regional carriers picked up the QWERTY phone, its debut on Big Red has been long delayed -until now. The folks at AllTechEverything spotted the phone at the bottom of a Verizon Christmas tree in a recent ad, alongside the Samsung DROID CHARGE and the LG Revolution.

HTC Merge and it is available starting today, then they will soon be offering the fold out QWERTY sporting LG Genesis. US Cellular is touting the HTC Merge as the carrier’s first Android-Powered Global Ready Smartphone.
hitting the FCC, to getting mentioned by Alltel, yet it never saw a launch. We have heard about this phone as far back as September 2010 if i recall.
pre-order date for the HTC Merge, the carrier's latest QWERTY Android slider. Pre-orders will be taken as of March 28, with the smartphone priced at $124.99 with a new, two-year agreement. That gets you an Android 2.2 phone with HTC Sense running an 800MHz Qualcomm processor. There's also a 5-megapixel camera, 3.8-inch touchscreen and 720p HD video recording. We've already seen the Merge bearing Verizon branding but HTC did promise that the handset would come to more than one US carrier. The Merge is also a world-phone, which means it has both CDMA and GSM radios and as such can be used on networks in North America and abroad. No word on when it will actually begin shipping, however.

HTC Merge. They have announced it as a Beautiful, Powerful, and Feature-Rich device coming to "multiple" North American carriers starting in Spring 2011. We have known about this phone for a while now and I'm sure many are eager to get some hands on with it. After all it looks to be HTC's answer to the Motorola Droid Verizon was so successful with.
HTC Merge accessories pop up in Verizon's system, but not alot of other hard evidence. Well, we have found some more evidence today on Verizon's website. The HTC Merge has popped up and you can drag and click the phone for a 360 degree view. Although, the phone was originally rumored to make its debut November 11th, that has obviously been postponed to a later date. This is definitely a good sign that the phone is nearing release if it happened to pop up on Verizon's website. We will keep you updated on the status of this phone and on any new info on the phone including the due date of the phone. Not sure how much longer this link will work, but it worked for me when I went on, so go ahead and play around with the device here. Via [bigdav1178 in Android Central Forum]
