Best Buy is receiving accessories for the HTC Thunderbolt on Feb 19th; launch soon after?
Specifically, the screen-shot shows that a holster case for the HTC Thunderbolt is expected to hit Best Buy stores on February 19th – meaning, we can potentially expect to see a launch shortly soon after. This time frame closely matches the rumor that we reported a few days ago about a tentative launch some time in late February. Although we're still approximately less than a month away from its alleged launch, the onset of accessories pouring into various stores indicates the all too reality of its impending release.
If it indeed manages to launch some time then, it'll easily fit Verizon's previous mention of being released “sometime in the first half of the year.” So let's hope that it all falls through so customers can finally experience Big Red's LTE network in all of its glory with the HTC Thunderbolt.

I just wish they would go ahead and let everyone know how much this fancy LTE stuff is gonna cost us a month. I am due an upgrade and if it is too much I may just opt for the Iphone.

I concur with both of you. I still have a windows mobile 6.5 phone (HTC touch diamond) that is > 2 yrs old. I want to upgrade now.
If LTE plans are reasonable, will go for the Thunderbolt (don't want to wait until June for Motorola Bionic). In the past, if my memory serves me well, weren't the initial 3G verizon smartphone data plans (unlimited data) about $100 / month???? I recall the price was pretty ridiculous, and eventually came back down to the $30 level.

I'm getting one regardless, just because it's on the LTE network doesn't necessarily mean their rates will jump as far as minutes and what not. If they up the data price again I'm still not getting iPhone. I have one now and Im tired of it, iPhones are lame. I need the Thunderbolt.
