Here we have it - the first phone to take advantage of Verizon's expansive 4G LTE network ushers us in a new era, where waiting for pages to download, or hiccups while streaming high-quality video to our handsets should be a thing of the past...

Droidfreak, your comments are at least ONE hour after the previous comments. Hard to believe they weren't "there" when you switched to this page. But for the record, ( and in case you miss another comment ) the Thunderbolt was already officially announced.

Our local best buy had one demo phone and wasn't suppose to show it but did. Phone looked really good and very fast. Didn't get to see for long but was very impressed!

Funny thing is how people say the thunderbolt is the evo on verizon. But once they seen the evo 2, it will be the thunderbolt on sprint.

"... use the ThunderBolt as a Wi-Fi hotspot, you won't be charged to do so until May 15th"

I've heard conflicting rumors on different sites about this one I have heard is :

A) "They arent charging till the 15th, so if you buy before its including in your $30 a month data"

The other which sounds more realistic is:

B) "free till the 15th but after that you have to pay extra no matter if you bought before or after the 15th"

As much as I want it to be A, its probably going to be B. Though I do get free MiFi through my Pre, but that was more of selling point for it. This is a selling point for MiFi. It doesnt matter though, I already bought PDAnet ha.

Sweet phone. Too bad it looks like Portland wont have 4g til 2012. Too steep a price for the phone just to run it on 3g.
