HTC Thunderbolt to cost $299.99 on a contract according to Best Buy
The HTC ThunderBolt is one of the most anticipated handsets to be released in the first half of 2011, and that's at least partly because it's set to be the first LTE-enabled Verizon phone.

This promising handset has experienced a few setbacks - among them numerous delays - and now we can report one extra problem - a Best Buy newsletter shows that the HTC ThunderBolt is to cost $299.99 with a two-year contract.

Fair enough, LTE is one of these features everyone wants to taste, and this phone will offer 8GB build-in storage plus a 32GB microSD card pre-installed. But despite all these goodies, can you justify spending $300 for a phone on a two year contract, no matter how good it is?

This device is set to be available for $699 without a contract, but its official release date is yet to be announced.

Take into account this may not be the final HTC ThunderBolt price on a contract, so keep your fingers crossed Best Buy and Verizon will discount it a little bit.
