Verizon Wireless told Phone Scoop today that the HTC Merge is available for use on its network. Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney explained via email, "The HTC Merge was approved for use on the Verizon Wireless network and is being sold by third party distributors, but not in Verizon Wireless stores." The Merge was approved by the FCC earlier this year, and Phone Scoop spent some time with it at the CTIA Wireless trade show in March. It is a sideways slider Android phone with QWERTY keyboard and HTC's Sense user interface. It is a world phone, capable of using Verizon's network in the U.S., and the GSM networks of overseas carriers. It is also being sold by Alltel and Cellular South. Verizon didn't indicate which retailers are selling the Verizon-compatible Merge, nor how much it costs.

It's good for people that think Motorola isn't the best manufacturer, but still want a keyboard. Don't forget about that sweet htc sense.
As long as this is a similar device to the one I played with months ago, this is easily one of the best non-4g devices out there. (this and Incredible2)
Battery life wasn't as bad as I originally thought, especially since it only has a 1400 battery in it. Probably due to the fact that they yanked the 1Ghz Snapdragon and dropped in the faster 800MHz. With lower operating frequency, it won't require as much battery.
Definitely an upper-level...almost elite level Android device.
