Let’s take a quick break from all of the Nexus S news for a second: the HTC Merge has been spotted in Best Buy’s inventory systems alongside other Verizon-bound HTC phones such as the Incredible, the Imagio, and the Touch Pro.

(People tend to spend most of their money on or around Black Friday.) So just Bing it on, Verizon! [via AC]
