HTC Thunderbolt March 17 Release: Best Buy Stocks
Well here we go again, the latest rumours on the release date of the HTC Thunderbolt smartphone on Verizon.
Now according to the guys at droid-life.com, customers that have pre-ordered the HTC Thunderbolt are being called and emailed by Best Buy with the 17 March being the expected release date of the phone. However, apparently they are also telling customers that they will call back later in the week, so they can set up appointments. Now this indicates that they may not be sure that the release will take place this Thursday.
There is also more information circulating that the HTC Thunderbolts’ status at Verizon Wireless’ distribution centres has changed to ‘quantity in stock’ from ‘quantity on order’. However, still no closer to knowing the release date, as no date is attached.
Why can’t someone just step up to the plate and give us concrete information on the release date of this smartphone?
Lastly, a Verizon agent has apparently spread the word on Twitter that the 17 March is indeed the release date, again not sure how bona fide this information is, so don’t take it as gospel. See earlier post done by my colleague Mark regarding ‘Facebook & Twitter messages’, on this subject.
