Despite seeing a few reports suggesting that the HTC Merge was going to launch with US Cellular on April 29th, we can now safely say that did not happen.
And as one would expect, another rumored release date that pops up shortly after. The details are coming by way of a leaked internal screenshot which
states that “the device management team is pleased to announce the
forthcoming launch of the HTC Merge on May 31 2011.”
So it looks like those interested will be able to pick up a Merge at the end of the month. And there is also suggestion that it will come with a $100 mail-in-rebate which will drive the final price down to $149.99.
