Leaked user guide for the HTC Merge hints to a Droid-less branding
Just by taking a quick peek at the Samsung Fascinate, it blatantly shows off why it's not a Droid-branded handset – especially when Bing search is the default searching client on the Android powered handset. Similar to that, we've recently been seeing a few good looking shots of the HTC Merge/Lexicon/Lexikon as it shows off its beautiful looking keyboard and all, but it looks to follow in the same path as the Samsung Fascinate.

Images from the user guide for the HTC Merge have leaked, and based on what's found in them, it points to the telling tale that this handset won't be flaunting any Droid branding from Verizon. Sure we've seen a Droid branded device before from HTC – like the Incredible and the Eris. But when screenshots in the leaked user guide show off Bing Search and Bing Maps, it doesn't aid itself in a anyway to be included with the existing Droid lineup of characters. Regardless, we'd bet that some people will oversee this and still side with the handset – just as long as the experience is rich and satisfying.
