HTC Thunderbolt 4G Price & Release Details Update: Best Buy flaunts uncertainty with $299.99 & $249.99 Price tags!

February 21, 2011, By Shawn Wagnon

We talked earlier today about how we were still not sure about when the HTC Thunderbolt 4G n Verizon Wireless was going to be out. The Release is not happening on February 24th for sure and while rumors point to a fresh launch date (February 28th), it would be a safer bet to expect it in the first couple of weeks of March. So, while we thought that the release date was unclear, at least we knew how much it would cost, right? Wrong, as there is new uncertainty around its price tag as well!

While Best Buy advertized the HTC Thunderbolt 4G for $249.99 on a two-year Verizon contract, now there is a new ad that shows the Thunderbolt priced at $299.99. That is another 50 bucks and we really have no idea why this new increase has come about. We are not even sure which of the price tags could ultimately float out.

The $50 difference, on further digging, is attributed to Best Buy’s discount and while we are trying hard to dig deeper into things, what exactly constitutes this discount is still not clear. So, it seems that Verizon could be offering the HTC Thunderbolt 4G for $300.

So are you willing to part with potentially $50 extra than initially known to buy the HTC Thunderbolt 4G, when it eventually turns up?
