Verizon's system ponies up SKUs for the HTC Thunderbolt & Samsung SCH-i520
In just the last couple of weeks, news surrounding the HTC Thunderbolt have been swirling around the web providing some much needed intrigue on this super Android powered smartphone. Granted that there are no official specs confirmed about the handset at this point, the thought of it sporting a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon MSM8960 processor will undoubtedly spark some interest for people.
However, we're inching ever closer to some kind if reality for this handset since its SKU (ADR6400) was recently found in Verizon's system – along with its dummy SKU as well. In addition, we find SKUs for the speculated LTE equipped Samsung SCH-i520 in the same system as well. With SKUs out in the open, it only bodes well for these devices becoming a reality in the near future.
As always, CES is in full swing this week, so be sure to keep your eyes on our site as we'll be covering the event!

In the related phones section of this article, it erroneously displays the GSM SGH-i520 slider feature phone released in 2007, not the CDMA SCH-i520 Android-powered smartphone to be released by Verizon Wireless in 2010.

I think that there might be a typo and the phone should be i5200 and not i520. In the other article that is linked in the above article, it says that " the Samsung SCH-I520 seems certain to join the powerful Galaxy S family with the Samsung Fascinate (also known as the Samsung Mesmerize and SCH-I500) being its closest relative". I'm sure that 5200 is closer to 5000 than 520.

We will just have to wait and see what comes out of CES. I know I'm really excited to see what devices come out starting this Thursday. I know a person who is wanting to get the best of the best phone and I don't want him to be stuck with last years best when this years will be just as good if not better.

I wonder if that Samsung will have a slide-out keyboard, being a Verizon version of the Epic 4G on Sprint, probably not but here's hoping.
