1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Yesterday we got a little hint from Verizon with a tweet saying the HTC Thunderbolt would be releasing soon. Today we wake up to find more confirmation that a release is imminent from next week's leaked Best Buy flyer. The advertisement introduces the 4G Thunderbolt by HTC and mentions that pre-orders will be available with a $50 deposit. A release date still hasn't been announced, but I have a feeling it's going to drop anytime. If you know something we don't be sure to let us know!

    Just called Best Buy's main number and was connected to a "mobile consultant." According to the dates she could find, it looked like to her that 2/14 would be the day that in-person pre-orders at stores would begin and that 2/24 was the date that the phone would start being available for pick-up.

    Why do they keep these dates so secret? Drives me nuts. I need to make a decision on a new phone.

    I was getting really excited about this phone until I saw the physical dimensions: 4.8" x 2.6" x .52"

    It's the thickness that puts me off. That's a beast. I'm still looking forward to the LG Optimus Black as a contender.
