The HTC Thunderbolt has been in the news a lot lately, we recently had the rumor that Apple and Verizon had done a deal to delay the handset to help with sales of the iPhone 4. But that elusive release date has not yet been revealed to the public by Verizon, all with have had so far is the CFO of Verizon saying it will be released very soon.
Now today we have news that an announcement will finally be made about the release date of the HTC Thunderbolt today. Alex over at Sentrix Nation apparently knows a Verizon Wireless insider, who has said the announcement will be made today, and HTC and Verizon have agreed in principle to a March 17 release date for the sought after handset.
We recently ran a poll asking you our readers when you thought the handset will finally see the light of day, and the majority of you thought it would be March 10. Unfortunately this now looks unlikely, but there is still time for it to be released by the 20th.
The handset has been marketed more aggressively lately with TV commercials and in Verizon Wireless stores, so it must be close before customers can finally know when they can purchase the Thunderbolt. A lot of our readers have been unhappy with the apparent delay in announcing a release date by Verizon.
Will you be glad to finally get a release date for the Thunderbolt?
