Droid-Life was sent a leaked invite to Verizon event on thursday. This Thursday, November 18th the HTC Merge will be launched at a Seattle Club called epubliq. On the invite the Merge is mentioned as a World Phone. Verizon seems to seriously be pushing world capable devices lately. If they expect LTE to take off. I don’t see a reason why not. Expect the Merge to be around the $199 price range after mail in rebate.
