Verizon HTC Thunderbolt Possible Release Date

For those of you who may be eagerly awaiting the release of the new Android 2.2 Froyo sporting HTC Thunderbolt, the word doing the rounds is that the lightning fast 4G LTE enabled smartphone will release to Verizon late next month.

According to an article over on Intomobile by Blake Stimac, and by way of Android Guys, an “unnamed source” has apparently managed to narrow that late next month date down to the 24th of February.

Apparently Big Red employees are already training for the HTC Thunderbolt, so it is possible the handset could appear earlier as there have been rumours the smartphone would see the light of day round about February 14th.

However according to the Android Guys article, their source has been reasonably strong in the past, so they would trust that February 24th date as being the likely release date for the Android touting HTC Thunderbolt.

One thing looks to be quite clear though, 14th or 24th it appears the HTC Thunderbolt will drop in February if everything goes as expected. So any of our readers hoping to snap up the Thunderbolt once it does hit shelves?

    I think its supposed to be released the same day. Though I haven’t checked lately. On that note, I will go surf around and see. If the Samsung comes out that day, I have a tough choice to make. But what makes me irritated is that they still haven’t named the phone. I don’t think so anyway.
