In a head-spinning move, the HTC Merge sadly won't be coming to Verizon after-all. Previously, industry sources indicated that Verizon would be getting the HTC Merge. Unfortunately, it turns out that Alltel snapped it up instead. We wanted to report this to those folks that were looking forward to this phone on Verizon.
On the bright-side, if you happen to also be with Alltel for some reason, you can go chat about the Merge over at our sister-site, Mergeforums.com. Pre-orders for the device start on March 28th.
