March 4th launch for HTC Thunderbolt tweets a Best Buy store
posted by Alan F. / Feb 24, 2011, 10:08 PM
So we have two separate sources telling us early March, with one giving us the 4th as a specific date. Will this finally be the last time that this moving target moves? How many more delays will it take for those ready to buy Verizon's first 4G handset decide to switch to something else, like the Motorola ATRIX 4G?
It would seem that whomever sent the tweet for Best Buy store #129 needs a calendar as March 4th is actually a Friday. Of course, with this not being a leap-year, perhaps there was a bit of confusion. Either way, it looks like early March will see the release of the long awaited HTC Thunderbolt.
Late tonight, a leaked picture of Best Buy internal communications was released showing a launch date of March 10th for the HTC Thunderbolt. This would make a great office pool, trying to guess the precise release date. So far, we have March 4th and the 10th as two potential days. Hopefully, Verizon will let us know soon what the launch date will be.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

the thunderbolt is faster than the bionic so you would be stupid to wait longer for that

meh it would be close... most people dont understand a dualcore vs singlecore isnt a diff of speed necesarrily. but ya on this site you'll get ripped apart for that statement cause most people just believe what they hear.

It seems like HTC must be having a lot of problems with this phone with all these delays since now it is being released that it is going to be lunched on the 4th because battery problems so it seems like there has been a lot of bugs to work out with it

they still need to fix it . i say forget that phone . and it only overclocked at 1.9. the moto droid can be over clocked at 2.5. I love the HTC but I'm thinking about it now . hmm . you can hack them but having a battery that sucks! really sucks . with the 2 core saves the battery by 40%. means more fun and more talk time. we need to call HTC. and tell them. make this phone with the 2 core. to fix the battery. so lets call now. and make the fix for them.

lets all call HTC!. called HTC and verizon already. and they said it can be done. if more of us call in before verizonwireless lunches the phone. and it would be pulled back for the fix. but now the phone would be the best. think about it . ;)

As the TB get delay every week Verizon tease us with a stupid commercial advertising(wasting money) that its coming..i think its a little to late..we all know that the Bionic will be on sale by mid April and people rather spend their $250 on a phone that a better spec phone

I happen to think that there is another issue. CRAPple just announced a new crap book with a feature called "Thunderbolt" and not soon after was the phone was delayed again and again.. Maybe I'm wrong, who knows. I was considering this phone, but might pick up the EVO.. Its the os update which will make the phone sing. Anyone out there have the EVO?

I'm just sick of best buy saying this date, this date, this date. And Verizon is being a real pain in the ass by not just giving a release date. They sure as shit made sure the iPhone was plastered all over the plastered all over the place. I'm ready to ditch Verizon and go to Sprint, or for that matter ANY other carrier. I'm done with the Verizon high school drama.

Yes it sucks having to wait n wait. but wouldnt it suck if they released a phone without bugs worked out? like t-mobile did with the G2. I had a friend buy the phone the day it came out. he has had problem after problem. he is now running android on it haha. no more problems. I have pre-paid for my thunderbolt, and i am not nervous about it. I appreciate what verizon is doing by pushing it back a couple weeks. that makes me confident that my money will go to a solid quality product.
