    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

    Going to be interesting to watch. I really want to see the final specs on this one. Vy close to making this the next phone. Very few in the running. This is one of the finalists.

    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?
