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.

Along with your everyday information on radiation and whatnot, this FCC filing came will lots of photos of the device, both inside and outside. Battery, camera, casing, everything your heart could possibility desire. Take a peek in the gallery below to get a better idea of what will be going on with this phone as far as hardware goes, then tell us if it looks familiar to you in any way at all. Looks rather similar to quite a few of the newer HTC line to us, what with the lovely brushed metal and all.

This being a phone you can use essentially anywhere in the world, we’re looking for society-changing bits and pieces we can put together to tell the future!
