It looks like the HTC Merge may finally make its debut on the Verizon network sometime later today. Droid-Life has acquired an internal document that shows the phone becoming available to 3rd party distributers today, May 12. Now the memo specifically says “3rd party distributers,” so it is unclear if it will be in Verizon corporate stores at launch. However, we are assuming this is a memo from a 3rd party and will be launching in both channels.
The HTC Merge runs on Google’s Android OS and has HTC Sense UI to make it pretty. With a full QWERTY keyboard, 3G, and an 800 MHz processor, the HTC Merge won’t be the most up to date phone, but it will do the job.
