    @toomuchgame441 Totally agree. If they would have come out with this in Nov when it was ready, my company would have let me make this the standard model. Now I had to order a whole bunch of phones in the interim and have a 4 different android models to support. Thanks a pant load

    I’m starting to think the HTC Merge’s release schedule is operating on Valve Time.

    “who the eff cares about the Merge at this point?”

    People who want a decent HTC Android smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard from a carrier that doesn’t have awful coverage and/or service. T-Mobile’s G2 and Sprint’s Evo 4G Shift are great but can’t be used when the carriers both have limited-to-no coverage in the area you live in. Verizon has far superior coverage but no phones equivalent to the G2 or 4G Shift (the Droid 2 sucks) which is why people are still waiting for the Merge all these months later. Either that or they don’t want to have to spend all the $$ involved in terminating their existing Verizon plan and starting up a new one with Sprint or T-Mobile just in order to avoid the wait from VZW by getting the available equivalent phone from one of those networks.
