A few days ago we had the CFO of Verizon talking about the HTC Thunderbolt being available “very shortly”, but didn’t give us an exact date. Then we have seen the device advertized on TV and in store, but mystery still surrounded any release date for the device. But today we have some exciting news about a possible release date.
A report by Chris Burns over at Android Community is reporting that a Verizon contact of SentNation, has said the HTC Thunderbolt is almost certain to finally arrive on March 10th. Evidently HTC are pushing Verizon to release then or face possible consequences.
Tensions are said to be running very high between HTC and Verizon over the release of the handset. Because of this it could mean the handset finally getting released, which will please a lot of customers desperate to get their hands on the device.
It is a strange situation surrounding the HTC Thunderbolt, what can be the reason for the delay? If HTC want the handset available to customers, is it Verizon themselves holding up the release? Surely it is in the best interests of both companies to get the device out there, and satisfy all the people itching to have the device since they first laid eyes on it.
Will you be hoping the Thunderbolt arrives on March 10?
