So about that HTC ThunderBolt release date ... We don't know when the hell it's finally going to be released. And at this point, we're not entirely sure who does. The Feb. 14 in-stock date at Best Buy didn't happen. And obviously that rumored Feb. 24 date has come and gone. We're still confident in the sources that brought us those bits of news. But you know what? Things change.
Now there's this image that appears in the Android Central Forums (among other places) that shows a March 10 launch. No telling how old it is, though, but at least it's something. And that we've seen it distributed to a half-dozen sources at this point is making it smell like a coordinated effort, so maybe this one's the real deal, folks. [Android Central Forums]
By the way: That Best Buy store in Roseville, Calif., that tweeted a March 4 date has since killed said tweet. Maybe that means it's real -- maybe that means a single store doesn't know what it's talking about and doesn't speak for an entire launch. You decide.
