HTC ThunderBolt and Samsung 4G LTE smartphone coming in late February?
A rumour indicates that two of the most anticipated 4G Android handsets to grace the Big Red shelves in the near future - the HTC ThunderBolt and the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone - are both coming in the last week of February.

This is in accordance with a previous rumour, but take into account this is a word-of-mouth story, which is said to originate from regional Verizon reps, so things may prove to be rather different.

However, it is claimed that marketing materials are starting to appear and some lucky guys are testing these handsets, so their launch must be near.

Also, the rumour that the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone will be Bing-free is confirmed, and this is certainly a good news for quite a few Verizon customers. In the meantime, check out our Samsung 4G LTE smartphone and HTC ThunderBolt hands-ons, and if you happen to be a Verizon rep, drop us a hint whether this rumour holds water or not. It will be appreciated.

Everyone, please boycot the Samsung verison. They screwed us Fascinate owners on Froyo for too long now. Down with Samsung!

What does Froyo have that you want? The only thing i am waiting for in froyo is flash. Alot of other phones had problems when they updated to 2.2, personally i'd rather wait until they get the bugs out.

I have from a good source within the company the Thunderbolt will be a Valentine's Day special/launch. Great news about NO-BING though!

I think i'm getting the Moto Bionic, but I might consider the HTC "Thunderbolt" cause Samsung like to Di$% you around with froyo updates. I know that the Samsung will come with Froyo, but what about future updates. BOOOOO Samsung.

Ahhhh...decisions, decisions, decisions! HTC or Moto?! Realizing that the HTC will be truly awesome, the Bionic will be like my X, but on steroids! Perhaps both and just swap back and forth depending on the day and the mood I'm in!

im def going with the thunderbolt... HTC just makes better phones IMO. the droid x was the only moto phone that i thought was actually good. the droid and droid2 i didnt like at all and i thought the touchscreens on those were ehh. the X was good. But i havent seen an HTC phone that wasnt money. So my money will be on that phone. sorry moto.

As of today, Verizon's longstanding $100 mail-in rebates on the Droid Pro, Droid X & Samsung Fascinate just became "instant online discounts" on Verizon's site. Coincidence? I think not.

i have had the fascinate and the moto droid. i honestly like the fascinate better the super amoled screen looks better the iphone4's retina display so the video n pics look better on the phone n screen quality is the only thing that sets these new phones apart
