Verizon’s first 4G handset, the HTC Thunderbolt, was rumored to launch February 14th but now reports are surfacing that the launch might have been pushed back. Our friends at Droid Life have obtained an internal memo that clearly says the “launch from 2/14 has been delayed, no ETA at this time.” Amazon had also previously listed the Thunderbolt with an estimated ETA of 2/14, but now that date has been removed.
We don’t know for sure what the hold up is, but the guys at Wirefly just posted another unboxing video for everyone out there waiting on this phone. They went on to say that Wirefly will be selling the Thunderbolt soon
and that Best Buy does not have a “national retail exclusive.”
Update: A representative of Wirelfly has informed us that they were incorrect. Best Buy has a national retail exclusive, but they do not have an online exclusive.
Most of the details about the Thunderbolt have already been revealed, but there is still something mesmerizing about watching a brand new phone get unboxed. Check out the clip below and let us know if you plan on picking up the Verizon Thunderbolt in the coming weeks. I really hope they get this phone out soon, because all these dual-core superphones that get announced at Mobile World Congress next week are going to be very tempting.
