HTC Thunderbolt release date set as March 17th: HTC regional sales manager tweets

March 14, 2011, By Shawn Wagnon

The HTC Thunderbolt 4G has been a highly-anticipated handset. From being the hot first 4G LTE mobile from Verizon Wireless it has become a mobile that always seems on the brink of release but never makes it to the stores. While those at Verizon might clutch onto straws and argue that they never promised a release date, it seems unfair to take pre-orders and then keep customers waiting endlessly.

At least some sorts of confirmation would be nice, but Verizon seems very hesitant on giving out a date. Every time you check their site, you get the same old “very soon’ line and by now the whole ‘dark clouds, lightning and thunderbolt’ spot on the site is getting a bit old and dull. But HTC Regional Manager has just let out what looks like the possible release date (once again) of the HTC Thunderbolt 4G.

The tweet indicates that March 17th will be the day that the Thunderbolt will finally hit store shelves. While earlier leaked internal mails also talked about the same date, we have gone down this road before and now are a bit skeptical about things. More so when the account that tweeted the date got deleted hours later.

While we would love to see the HTC thunderbolt out as soon as possible, we are not so sure that we can believe these tweets and leaks from best Buy and HTC employees anymore. Again, an official date by Verizon (even if it the launch some time away) would be welcome.
