    The HTC Thunderbolt release is building like a super thunderstorm and today Verizon has just launched a new commercial for that might give us some clues to the actual release. Here's one youtube poster's theory on the release date:

    I know this is the web and it's a worldwide forum... but if it's VZW, why is it in Spanish? or at least why is there no English version to go with it? Either way, it's a pretty cool / short little spot they posted, along with the theory of the youtube poster.

    ^ probably cause it sounds a lot more dramatic then if it was someone speaking english just saying "3 seconds 2 seconds..."

    but doesn't every 1 second between flash and thunder equate to approx 7 miles?? so that could mean it's anywhere from 7 to 21 days away... *stirs the pot* ;)
