Verizon-bound HTC (DROID?) Merge was set to be announced in the next few hours?
It seems that twists and turns happen on a daily basis with the HTC Merge. First, there was this nasty rumour that the handset has been delayed in order to receive LTE radio, but contrary to this, the HTC Merge made a visit to the Best Buy internal system and the Cellebrite machine – both events hinting that the handset may be released soon. Then, on top of these visits, a report came that the device is set to be launched within few hours in Seattle's club Republiq. So, after our hopes have been raised that we will see the announcement (or even the launch) of the device, it's regrettable that this looks unlikely now.

As things stand at the moment, it seems that the event at Republiq is nothing more than a re-launch of the HTC Droid Incredible and has nothing to do with the HTC Merge. The fact is that the latest poster of the event makes no mention of the HTC Merge and it's only logical that this means we are about to witness yet another delay of this handset.

We will wait and see what's going to happen at Republiq, but sadly common sense dictates we will not witness any sort of announcement about the HTC Merge. Although, to be fair with you, we would love to be proven wrong.
