New ad for the HTC Thunderbolt takes us Back to the Future
Still waiting for a precise launch date for the HTC Thunderbolt? Verizon's first 4G handset is about to get released and another new ad has been spotted for the device. Similar to the scene in Back to the Future when Doc Brown grabs the two cables and plus them in just in time for the thunderbolt to hit the clock tower and generate enough power to send the DeLorean back to the correct time, the ad for the HTC Thunderbolt suggests that this is the first handset powerful enough to work on Verizon's 4G network.

The funny thing is most people don't have 4g and won't have 4g for some time now. Yet they will buy this phone and brag about how their phone is 4g and yours isn't.

Go compare them side by side, virtually identical. The Thunderbolt does have a 100mAh smaller batt though

there is no such thing as a thunderbolt. there are lightning bolts, and rumbles of thunder. a "bolt" is something you can see. you can NOT see thunder. thunder is a noise/sound resulting from the lightning, which is technically a strike. just saying..

ok, so its a weapon, something startling or something destructive. doesnt sound like something that would be good to be attributes regarding a phone. the fourth part is stated to be imaginary, i am not finding this phone to be imaginary. thanks for murking things up some more poopular.

Seems like every BB store is different. I stopped by today and asked a rep and he said that it would be available for sale on the 26th; then again how many times haven't devices been pushed backed? So I guess we shall see...

For all you ignorant dumb f__ks that are not aware of the huge melting pot in the US… go f__k yourselves! If the commercial is done is Spanish guess what... that means they have a huge market in the Spanish speaking community. For the idiot that posted about stealing cable... I have “English” speaking people trying to steal my internet.

Como son de ardidos cabroneS!!!!! No por estar en español les arde hasta el culo!!! Se creen mucho por eso o que! I have the advantage to speak two languages and you white trash people can't come out of their perfect bubble...LOSERS!!!!

Go back to your own hell hole country carlos and stop destroying ours, and by the way, your "english" sentence doesnt even make sense!!!

Apparently you aren't exactly one to correct anyone's grammar. Your sentence is horrible. Run ons, incorrect capitalization, poor punctuation, right on down the line... And you use the name USA. How appropriate, yet not needed. Anyone could tell where you are from without using the name USA. Poor little racist. Do you have a strong signal in your trailer park?

Carlos is right! Thanks to immigrant people we are an important country! I would love to see you or even try to do some of the jobs they do!!! You feel to proud of your country but don't do anything about it!! Thanks to the immigrants you are not paying $10 for a tomatoe or $15 for a cabbage.

I thought we were going to slobber over the "coming soon" Thunderbolt! How did we get to this stupid little pathetic racist fight? You are both WRONG! And it's so inappropriate for Mexicans to move to the US and trashmouth Americans and their country. Instead of "melting" in the pot! Why aren't you saying you are proud you're Americans now and trying to make this country better with your fellow citizens (black, white or anything in between)? How can you call the next guy white trash when you don't know him? It's just showing who You are, not HIM. There are trash people of every color. In case you want to insult me too, I'm neither Mexican, nor born in America. I WANT THUNDERBOLT!

Just be quiet. It may be inappropriate for Mexicans to do so but i'm pretty sure they're not going around shouting white trash for fun. If everyone was accepted as equals here then there would be no premise for name-calling. It's inappropriate for Mexicans to move to the US and trash mouth but that trash mouthing is probably a result of being looked down upon, treated unfairly, and called names themselves. I can see you made an effort to be unbiased, but try a little harder next time.
