All signs point to a Feb 14 release date for the HTC Thunderbolt, and according to next week's Best Buy advertisement, you will soon be able to pre-order the first LTE phone on Verizon at your local Best Buy. The ad mentions the pre-order with a $50 deposit, and has all the right buzz around LTE speeds, but offers no concrete release date or any hidden specs or features.
Verizon has already hinted that we will see the Thunderbolt sooner than expected, and this is more proof that the Thunderbolt will soon be on the shelves and ready for sale. If you're still on the fence about snagging the T-Bolt, hit the forums and see what others are saying to help your decision. Thanks taesungx1!
