HTC Thunderbolt Release: More Fuel To The Fire
The release date fiasco with the HTC Thunderbolt continues to roll on and gets a little more fuel added to the fire today with yet another possible release date being added to the confusion, and like all the rest should of course be taken with that large pinch of salt.
Apparently some guy known as JR has spoken to a friend of the family that works at corporate at Verizon, yep it’s a kind of he said she said kind of rumour here.
Anyway apparently this Verizon rep told JR that Verizon employees often “drop” false dates for such mobile phone news reporting sites and those at the Big Red have a good laugh whenever a new rumour hits the net.
Apparently the rep also stated that the HTC Thunderbolt release isn’t delayed as there has never been a release date announced, although there have been some “technical issues” with the Android handset.
Now onto the main event, apparently the unnamed rep told JR to take a look at “the pattern of device releases” which may give a clue as to when the HTC Thunderbolt is likely to see release.
So here’s that pattern of device release for Verizon according to the Android Community guys…the Verizon iPhone was released on the 10th of February – the Motorola Xoom on the 24th of February – the Apple iPad 2 on the 11th (“typo,one day difference”) – thus apparently we can expect the HTC Thunderbolt to see release on the 24th of March.
Thin I know but it could be possible, but then again as this is a he said, she said kind of hearsay, unless Verizon comes right out and announces the release date all remains speculation; nice to know that Verizon may be having a laugh at the customers expense though.
