HTC ThunderBolt coming with love for Valentine's day?

HTC ThunderBolt coming with love for Valentine's day?
The HTC ThunderBolt seems to be quite eager to shake the mobile world as soon as possible, and we have already told you of the rumoured release date in late February, its accessories arriving on February 19 in Best Buy stores, and that this phone may not be able to offer all its functionality at launch.

Now, a mix of a leaked Best Buy internal document and an HTC ThunderBolt hands-on video, which you can see below (presumably coming from someone working for the Taiwanese manufacturer) hints that we may see this handset even sooner than expected.

The leaked document shows that a Verizon phone with a Best Buy number BBY60LD and a proof of purchase 044476816574 is to send us some Valentine love on February 14, while at the hands-on video below we see that the ThunderBolt has a brand seal which reads...  044476816574.

Sounds plausible, even likely, but we are not getting too excited yet. And until this handset arrives (hopefully on February 14), all you are left with is to check our HTC ThunderBolt hands-on, and if you have some internal info on this or other exciting handsets, to tip us.

Phone Arena is like the TMZ of cell phones...doesn't matter how relevant the story is or the context of the information they have. They'll run it anyway to fill their site with "news". lol Hey if ppl will listen/ read, why not???
