Earlier today we showed you that an HTC rep posted to his Twitter account over the weekend that the 17th was the date, but soon after his Twitter post was removed. Since then, we've received several tips from Verizon employees stating that their systems now show the 17th as the release date, and one person even says their store has already got in its first shipment of phones today and will start selling them on Thursday. There is also a leaked image (below) showing the 17th from Verizon's own inventory system, and there are also reports that BestBuy stores have started calling people who paid the $50 deposit to show up on that date. Finally, Verizon's site has their Thunderbolt accessories page up, and also their 360 degree view of the phone, and the Thunderbolt can even be spotted on the main Verizon Wireless page
Hopefully the pieces will fall together and the phone will be out this Thursday.
Thanks to our tipsters!!!
