HTC ThunderBolt inventory

Why's everybody look so shocked to hear the HTC ThunderBolt's coming out on March 17? We totally had complete faith in that e-mail we showed you on Friday. (Any hedging in our post surely was coincidental.) Anyhoo, the evidence is mounting, with this morning's tweet and voicemail, and now the listing in Verizon's inventory system. And retailer Wirefly's getting into the game, saying it's opening up pre-orders tonight for a March 17 shipping date. All that's left is for Verizon to actually officially announce things. (Our guess: about 5 minutes after a certain Android Central editor goes to bed.) [Wirefly, Engadget]

AceOptimus says:

I hate it when companies dance around product release dates like this. I mean why not just tell everybody? An explanation for why it has been delayed maybe?

Laughed pretty good at the end there. :)

Didn't we see adds like this the last time there was a rumored release date?

My local Costco's wireless folks told me the 17th last Monday. She kinda hinted that they had some already.

For those who were wondering if LTE is going to cost more, the guide says data plans $29.99 or higher needed. Sounds like it will be the same.

I think verizon is doing it just to spite Cory after he said in the podcsst last week it won't come out this Thurs.

I've been waiting for this phone forever but am getting sick of the hype...let it drop already!!!

Make note that although the data package will cost the same, I noticed a side note that a 4G SIM card will be required. Wonder what that will cost!

I hear the official cost is: PLENTY.

pDoG says:

wait, what is this phone again? Will it run Android?

Mike_is_Mike says:

Thunderbolt? I seem to remember a phone by that name. Is this a re-make of that old phone we were told about last year?

Your ignorance and stupidity shines. Evo quadrant 1100, Thunderbolt 2000. Evo plastic, Thunderbolt Aluminum. New gen processor, more RAM, more storage, 32 Gig SD. Lte, better screen (SLCD), new Sense, better camera sensor, better network. This phone pwns the Evo, and iphone in every way. Get educated, fool.
