The HTC Merge might be finally released soon. After being officially announced in February, the device surfaced again to pay a visit to the FCC last month, and now it’s being leaked again in official press shots. Though this time around – the phone has been branded with Verizon’s logo. Unsurprising since Verizon’s already got a CDMA world phone and the whole reddish color scheme of the Merge goes very well with Verizon anyway. Nicknamed the “CDMA Desire Z”, the phone packs a similar slide-out QWERTY keyboard and shares the same body shape. The HTC Merge should be available anytime now, with this week as a possible release date. Stay tuned for more details.
