Verizon Could Receive HTC Merge This Week

HTC could launch the Merge handset at Verizon Wireless as early as Thursday according to internet rumors that circled today.

The Merge is the first HTC Smartphone to feature a full sliding QWERTY keyboard on the Verizon Wireless Network and is also reported to feature the newly minted second-generation Snapdragon processor.

According to Electronista, it also features a 3.8 inch touchscreen and offers a 5MP camera.

It’s still unclear if 4G rumors are accurate with conflicting reports pointing to different answers. GSM support for worldwide versions of the phone will also make it a catch for users outside of the Verizon network.
