Best Buy's Facebook page reveals HTC Thunderbolt and Motorola XOOM launch dates
We previously reported that the XOOM was due on February 17th, so we're sorry to report that it will be another week after that. But we know you don't mind waiting. Isn't the expectation half of the fun?
As for the Thunderbolt, the launch on the 14th is on track with our previous estimates. This possibly premature post by Best Buy could be in error, but we think it's more likely that they were just too excited to keep it to themselves. And for that, we thank them.

does that mean 4g will be ready for areas that dont have it yet or will they run on 3g in the mean time?

they run on 3G but if you're lucky and you live in a 4G supported area than you will be able to use it on theThunderbolt.

They will run 3G in areas that don't have the LTE infrastructure.

Really wanna play with the XOOM!
The thunderbolt can eat shit though as far as I'm concerned. not that it won't be good, but despite HTC making good phones, and they do, I think they are rather uninspired. Ok, large screen and powerful hardware. But bland designs(for their android phones-tilt 2 was dope) subpar cameras that shoot large but inadequate pix(8mp means big not good) and poor HD video. And sense is overrated. IMHO that is.
