So, you really want that new HTC Thunderbolt everyone is talking about, right? But, you're lacking one key element: 4G LTE coverage. Well, my friend, don't be discouraged. Verizon Wireless tweeted this morning that they will be launching LTE in "a mess of new cities and towns" this Thursday. This is good news for all you people that have been waiting for that lightening speed all those commercials have been showing off. This is also great news for all you current Thunderbolt owners. More LTE means less signal searching -- and that makes for a happy battery.

Back in January, Verizon announced that they would have LTE in 140 markets by the end of 2011. Click here to see that list. As for Thursday, we don't exactly what "mess of new cities and towns" they're talking about, but as soon as we find out we'll let you guys know. [Twitter]
