T-Mobile vs AT&T Senate hearing going on Live!

It looks like things are starting to heat up with the T-Mobile and AT&T merger we have all been hearing so much about. Even the FCC was looking for users opinions and thoughts.

AT&T even said that T-Mobile is not a competitor, they only see Verizon as one.

HTC Merge at FCC, Verizon Branded, Still CDMA World Capable

This is the HTC Merge, a CDMA world phone that's got a lovely slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a healthy dose of Android on board. It's found its way to an FCC review now, carrying with it the Verizon tag meaning that it will be at least one of the carriers allowed to work with the handset in the near future. Another CDMA world phone offered by Verizon is the Blackberry pwning Motorola Droid Pro, a phone we used constantly whilst rolling through Mobile World Congress 2011 due to its global abilities and sweet big face with tiny keyboard below - would we rather be rolling with a big fat flip-out landscape keyboard such as this? You can bet on it.

HTC Merge Officially Announced

We've all seen it, it's been leaked more than a few times. Now it's official, HTC has just announced the 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 Appears Again, Heading to Alltel

We first heard about the HTC Merge (formally the HTC Lexikon) all the way back in September. Since then there have been a few leaks like it appearing on Verizon's website and then, just like that, it completely disappeared. Well now after it has been apparently scrapped by Verizon, it has shown up featuring Alltel branding. The HTC device featuring a full QWERTY keyboard was met with much excitement before it disappeared. Rumored to be one of the first World Phones, then was delayed to utilize LTE, the Merge is not even coming to Verizon for reasons unknown. Even though it will not be introduced to the masses on Big Red, it sure brings Alltel's Android linup up to par with other carriers. Will you be picking one up, is the Alltel vs. Verizon a big factor for you with this QWERTY HTC? [Via Droid-Life]
