HTC Merge rolls into FCC with mentions of Verizon

Chris Ziegler

It's not much of a secret that the Merge is destined for Verizon -- but for some reason we can't put our finger on, HTC has been very careful not to mention the carrier by name since the phone's reveal last week. Maybe Verizon's not yet 100 percent certain it wants to launch this one yet? At any rate, just in case there was any lingering doubt, the FCC filing for the Merge includes a user manual plastered from start to finish with Verizon logos and mentions of Verizon services. That's kind of funny considering that they went to all the trouble of carefully taping over the logo in the handset's external photos... but don't worry, FCC lab engineer -- we've had those kinds of days before, too. Keep your chin up!
