    We know the HTC Thunderbolt is going to be unveiled next week, but when do you think the Thunderbolt will actually launch?

    Please be sure to visit our HTC Thunderbolt Area.

    I say mid February - it was at least a month after the announcement of the Droid before it's Official Release

    Well it could be within a month of the CES unveiling or they could pull a Samsung and wait like 6 months.

    Android Central just posted images showing that HTC Thunderbolt Phone and Dummy Phone sku's have been put into Verizon's system along with the same two items for the Samsung SCH-I520.

    As others have indicated and I agreed its far more likely that Verizon is clearly getting ready to launch these out of the gate of CES. Indicating a January launch window, at least for one or both.

    Based on everything I've read and seen it looks like I'll be paying retail to get one as I am 12 months out before I'm eligible for an upgrade :yeahbaby01:

    I just signed up two months ago so I can go retail or use the extra (wife's) upgrade. She uses a std flip phone and I have a spare one of her exact model in reserve.

    Unfortunately for us US customers (and possibly everyone else) those specs have been kicked to the curb. Based on HTC's position that they will be "First to 4G Again" the processor and other specs don't fit an immediate launch. The processor alone is a non-shipping product until the middle of the year.

    This will have an unlocked bootloader correct? Isn't Motorola the only manufacturer that has locked bootloaders?

    Yes Motorola is the only manufacturer to do that. As for the release date, I think it is sometime in January. We first saw this phone leaked back in summer 2010 so this phone has been made if will for awhile now, people tested it at CES yesterday, its practically ready to sell.

    Now what's on my mind is if 4G LTE will cost extra and will still be unlimited for $29.99/month. Oh and how much is this sucker? Hopefully the classic 199.99 with 2 year agreement.

    By the way, the specs are on HTCs website guys.....1.3 megapixel front camera, 1ghz processor, pretty sure its a single core. And the battery, well its 1400mAh. Looks like we'll need extended batteries, huh?

    Here are the specs copied from HTCs website:

    Networks:
    LTE 700, CDMA EvDO revA
    Operating system:
    Android™ 2.2 + HTC Sense
    Display:
    4.3” WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen
    Camera:
    8MP with autofocus, LED Flash (2x LED), 1.3MP front facing camera
    Memory:
    8GB emmc + 768 RAM Memory card, preinstalled 32 GB microSD™
    WLAN:
    802.11 b/g/n
    Bluetooth:
    2.1 with EDR (3.0 when available)
    GPS:
    GPS/AGPS
    Battery:
    1400 mAh
    Special features:
    Dual mics with noise cancellation, Surround sound, Compass sensor, G-Sensor, Proximity sensor, Light sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, MicroUSB, FM radio, LTE SIM slot , TI audio DSP
    Chipset:

    768mb of RAM, front facing camera, and 32gb SD card as well as the given 4G capability all make this better than the Droid X. Also notice it will be compatible with Bluetooth 3 when it comes out.
