Best Buy sets $249.99 contract price for HTC Thunderbolt; displays pop up at Verizon stores
It seems that every few seconds, some new developments occur when it comes to the HTC Thunderbolt. Verizon's first 4G handset is expected to launch February 24th as we reported. But the way things are happening so quickly, anything could happen. A few days ago, we showed you leaked internal communications from Verizon that basically said that in-house promotional material would arrive at stores close to launch. As you can see from the picture below, some of the carrier's retail units have received a display to put up to promote the device. This should indicate that the launch of the Thunderbolt is imminent and perhaps closer than February 24th.

A leak of a Best Buy advertisement shows that the HTC Thunderbolt will be sold for $249.99 at the big box retailer with a signed 2 year contract. Off contract, the price will be a hefty $749.99.
