    But seriously, probably the 24th.

    I read that Peter Chou the CEO of HTC announced today @ MWC it was launching this week, if so wouldn't that make it the 17th for a "typical" Verizon launch day?

    MWC 2011: HTC launch live blog - News - Know Your Mobile

    Read 10.05, says TB is now shipping to Verizon. This only says that it's shipping to the VZW stores, but has no bearing on an actual release date. I don't know if they will release as soon as they get them. My money is still on the 24th

    It came straight from the mouth of HTC's CEO at MWC that they are "shipping the Thunderbolts this week." I think a release this Thursday is out of the question though, that is not enough time to get them all in stock and prepare for launch.

    I thought it was Thursday 2/24 for sure, but then there was this tonight:

    Sorry for the mix up on the "Confirmed Release Date" thread, I posted the wrong link. This is the correct link.

    http://www.techykid.com/2370/verizon-htc-thunderbolt-release-date-confirmed-on-february-24/

    And what's up with moderators telling me not to post new threads all the time :rolleyes: I thought that's what forums were for. Especially when a source has a confirmed date on the HTC Thunderbolt's release. I think that awards a new thread if anything does. I all of a sudden dislike this forum, because free posting is obviously forbidden :blink:

    That's because a similar thread already exists elsewhere on this forum. Go to the Droid News section of this forum and find the thread titled "HTC Thunderbolt Release Date". This has nothing to do with free speech and stuff. I think the mods are trying to reduce clutter here.

    Probably because you use the word "confirmed" to describe information coming from bogus websites. That's not something to be used loosely around here. Whoever put that page up is just regurgitating rumors he read on other websites that we have all already heard of. That person has no special information. Also, there are already a few threads on the exact same topic, so it does clutter the forum and cause people to be misled.

    Forums are for free posting as long as there is a reasonable amount of organization. What good is a forum if there are multiple threads about the same topic?

    You may like posting new threads all the time, but most do not like to have to sift through thread after thread to get their info. If a related thread is already posted, try using it to save others the hassle. :blackdroid:

    While I realize Verizon has NEVER stated a specific launch date, and that all of the frenzied excitement is out own doing, I have to say I started thinking ThunderBolt vs Bionic again. I put my deposit down at BB on the 7th only to be disappointed. Still though Verizon seems intent on screwing themselves over just to perhaps meet analyst expectations on iPhone sales. Who the F@#k cares about the analysts. Seriously those jokers bet on cockroach races if it makes a buck or two.

    My crazy point is since its been so up and down and the Bionic could be releasing very shortly after has anyone considered getting it instead. Not for the dual core but just because you gotta have the new hotness.

    Well, suppose something crazy happened and it did launch this month, that would be easy with my new Motorola Atrix in hand and its ability to take 720p video :)
