Still no official release date on the Thunderbolt??? If they are indeed shipping this week, then the 24th is the correct release date??

I have given up on HTC products. They seem to constantly churn out new hardware without supporting the existing ones. Its sell it and forget about it. This shows in their software updates which at best takes ages and worst, never comes. Their standard replies are always 'We are working on it, please check our website'. Never been a fan of Apple but in this respect the are the best with upgrades. HTC thinks they can just forget about their consumers after they have sold them a product? Look at how Nokia and Motorola lost market share with crappy product and service.
