Verizon HTC Thunderbolt Naughty: iPad 2 More Important
Surely the HTC Thunderbolt delay is taking its toll on customers leaving them with the decision if they should buy or not, we have had a lot of response from readers and some are not very happy at all, so why the delay? Is it really the case of Verizon HTC Thunderbolt naughty and that the iPad 2 is more important?
The HTC Thunderbolt has been delayed a few times now and it seems to be the same old story with no solid release date and yesterday PhonesReview colleague James reported that the smartphone could be delayed until March 16.
The delay is being pointed at Verizon according to many sources such as Android Community and The Examiner (We like the sources only report what we see and hear), if you read over on Android Community HTC has threatened to pull ads about Thunderbolt id Verizon does not announce a release date, now they said that they wanted to hear something by last Saturday and yet still no word on release.
We have mentioned a few times that the HTC Thunderbolt could be released March 10, which is Thursday but we all know that the new Apple iPad 2 is being released so for Verizon to release a smartphone and a new tablet on the same day is not going to happen. What do you think?
Have a little read over on HTCPedia where they report HTC is getting upset about Verizon delaying the HTC Thunderbolt.
For all the latest updates on the HTC Thunderbolt please visit Verizon Wireless and HTC, whilst you wait you may want to view the video of the Thunderbolt being handled. Please let us know what you think of the above news.
Should Verizon pull the release date out of the bag before they lose potential customers? Should they release the Thunderbolt before, on the same day or after the iPad 2 releases? So many questions that we would love your thoughts on.
After reporting the Thunderbolt delays for a few weeks now we have to sit back and be honest about it all, Verizon has never once mentioned when the smartphone was going to be released so in one respect how can a phone be delayed if a release date was never announced. We know we here at PhonesReview mentioned release dates but we only report the latest news offerings, what do you think?
