Yesterday the official Verizon Wireless twitter feed said the HTC Droid Thunderbolt may come sooner than expected. Today Androidcentral has posted a forthcoming Best Buy ad which shows pre-order details for the first 4G LTE phone on Verizon with the words “Coming Soon” above it.
It’s been reported that the HTC Thunderbolt will be released on February 24th at Verizon Wireless stores however there have been conflicting reports on when it will be released to other channels like Best Buy. Allegedly Best Buy will recieve the Thunderbolt on February 14th, 10 days before the unofficially announced February 24th date at Verizon. This will be just 4 days after the iPhone 4 arrives at Best Buy Stores and Verizon Wireless corporate stores on February 10.
Last week popular Android site Droid Life, reported the pricing break down for the HTC Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt is reported to cost $249.99 on a two year contract, $329.99 on a 1 year contract and $599 off contract.
