Official Car Dock for HTC Thunderbolt Priced before Release

By Posted 14 Mar 2011, 09:16

We are still in the midst of the release date confusion for the highly anticipated HTC Thunderbolt handset on Verizon, but we wanted to move away from that slightly to tell you about the official car dock accessory for the handset which has just been revealed and priced.

The accessory hasn’t even been announced by Verizon or HTC yet, but that hasn’t stopped a leaked image appearing over at Phandroid. It confirms that the device will be generously priced at just $29.99 when it lands in Verizon stores presumably throughout April.

Furthermore, the image also reveals that the car dock will have support for two-way video calls and the device will go into automatic navigation mode once placed inside the dock. It’s a pretty good price we feel, especially when the likes of the HTC EVO car dock sells for around $59.99 – at $29.99 for the Thunderbolt dock, you definitely don’t have anything to complain about in this aspect.

There’s no point getting excited about this though if we still don’t know when the device itself will be releasing. You can keep up to date with all the latest news on the HTC Thunderbolt here. We’ll update you when we hear if the alleged March 17 / 21 release date changes.
