    Miami has done it again; this time he got his hands on a picture of what Verizon stores are hiding behind those closed doors. This picture was taken of a freshly opened HTC Thunderbolt and a very attractive Motorola Xoom, and it seems everything is set for the big launch next week.

    That is all we have for you tonight. Spread the word guys, these bad boys are finally ready for us to get our hands on.

    Just got back from Best Buy, $50 down :D

    I'm pretty excited about it, only thing I'm wondering about is if/when I cancel the data plan is it going to have that disgusting "No Service" banner at the top 24/7 or will it just pretend like its a wifi only version? Anybody have any experience with the Galaxy Tab or any other device

    i'm sure if you preordered you will get it tomorrow, if not make sure you go there on the 24th and get yours then.

    This pic doesn't really prove anything. They still could sit on them for a month if they wish. I don't see a confirmed date anywhere.

    Thanks WenWM for the post and Miami for the pics. There might be a light at the end of the tunnel after all.

    The XOOM is being released on 2/24, I reserved it an hour ago and the best buy salesperson had a flyer that said it and I asked as well. As for the Thunderbolt I have no idea.

    Those are dummy phones

    Ok, one is a pad. Just because someone takes a picture of soon to be released devices; means they will be available in a few days?!!

    Sorry, I just don't see anything substantial here.

    So when you say "next week" for the Thunderbolt do you mean week of the Feb 20-26 or Feb 27th to March 5th? Since technically we're currently in the week of Feb 20-26.

    I understand that the pictures themselves might not be definitive but as far as the XOOM is concerned, it is official
