HTC Thunderbolt available mid-February at Amazon and Best Buy

• 08/02/2011


Pre-ordering is now available for the HTC Thunderbolt at Best Buy, for a possible launch on what we thought was Feb 24th, but we see it’s possible it’ll be sooner after Best Buy issued a Press Release Monday, lacking a launch date unfortunately.

Amazon also is launching the HTC Thunderbolt, but gave us a date, Feb 14th 2011. That date is a little sooner than Best Buy‘s rumored date, so we think it’s possible that the 14th will be the launch date for Amazon, and Best Buy will likely have it that same day if not a couple days after. We’ll have to wait it out tough to know for sure.
