    It doesn't seem like that long ago, when the HTC Merge was a hot topic, and many were looking forward to its release. Industry sources tell us that it will actually launch tomorrow, but interest for the device seems to have waned a bit. Also, even though the phone has been confirmed for Verizon's network, it will not be available in Verizon stores, and will instead only be in 3rd party stores.

    Even though the phone is pretty slick looking and the keyboard seems to be "cutting edge", the rest of the specs for the phone are fairly mediocre. I suppose this could be a great device for those folks that really need to have the physical keyboard, or the "Mobile Hotspot". Anyone in the forums still looking at this one?

    What a waste of time. Yet again Verizon screwed the pooch on a phone that could've been great, 8 months ago. Delays, sub-par specs and BING, wtf?

    The phone and $20 in your pocket on a 2-yr contract. Otherwise, it's overpriced.
