FCC Approves Verizon-Branded HTC Merge
HTC recently announced the Merge, a new CDMA world phone that has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Google's Android operating system. When first announced, HTC didn't note what CDMA wireless carriers would offer the Merge. Documents seen on the Federal Communications Commission web site reveal the Merge is most likely headed to Verizon Wireless first. In the draft user manual published by the FCC, Verizon Wireless and Verizon's services are mentioned repeatedly. Verizon hasn't confirmed that it will sell the Merge, but it has offered CDMA world phones, such as the Motorola Droid Pro, in the past.
