Add March 10th to the List of HTC Thunderbolt Release Dates (Updated)

The big rumor running around tech sites today suggested that the HTC Thunderbolt would be out next week on March 3rd or 4th, but the screenshot we just received from our friends at Best Buy suggests that it’ll be another week after that.  March 10th is apparently the date that BBY is expecting to launch the phone and we’re of course skeptical, but at least it’s not from a random guy in a forum.  Can you all wait another couple of weeks?

Update:  This document was spammed out to every tech site on the planet last night and as many have pointed out, it looks a little odd to be taken too seriously.  What’s even whackier, is that the tipster sent us a second email yesterday pointing out the fact that the Best Buy tweet about the 4th had been removed, only we already knew that.  Fishy, fishy, fishy.

Cheers C!

    Come on Verizon, AT&T already has their version of the Thunderbolt advertised for sale (the HTC Inspire), they also have the ATRIX for sale and Sprint has had the EVO4G out their for quite sometime and now they have the EVO shift. Does Verizon think they are so big and good that all we have to do is sit there and wait, and wait, and wait and ZZZZzzzz

    why is the thunderbolt launch listed as 03/10/11 with the zero in front but the Iphone launch is listed as 2/10/11 without the zero?

  • Charlesr

    lets be realistic. does the 4g realy matter much in reality unless you are planning on downloading 1 gig files.
    the 3g phones allready have good enough bandwidth to stream Netflix and hulu with out lag.

    i have seen the 3g out perform sprints 4g.

    a friend of mine has a sprint 4g evo……he started the download of angry birds at the same exact time i started it on my droid incredible. neither phone using wifi. i had mine downloaded, installed and was at level 12 while he was still at 56% of the download. 4g will a rarely reach its full speed capabilities….unless you have a 4g tower in your back pocket. my droid on 3g even walks all over my 4g clear wireless access pod.

  • Yelli01

    At this point, I think that those of us who have been waiting for the thunderbolt’s release should boycott. Once it is actually released we should take our time about purchasing it. Delay your purchase as they have delayed the release.

    Hmm i will say it looks fake but come on march 10th. No F********* way! Give me my phone already!

  • xArmedx

    The Thunderbolt date style is different from the rest & little bit more blurry then the other dates. I call fake.

  • Anonymous

    the longer this phone gets delayed.. the easier it is to wait until dual core phones come out.. good job HTC, idiots

  • user

    I love how everyone gets so agitated over rumors. Guys, these are rumors and need to be taken with as grain of salt. All of us want more info cause we are crazy about gadgets, but getting upset over rumors is silly. If u want a solid release date to believe in then wait for an official announcement otherwise read these rumors but do not take them seriously as I can photoshop pages like this everyday if i wanted to stir up trouble.

  • Anonymous

    OK, I’m on the phone at this moment with a Verizon tech support rep and she said they got the word that the release date for the Tunderbolt is Monday, February 28th. She said that they pulled the previous dates because of leaks (?). I’ll believe it when I see it, but she was quite positive. I’ll just go ahead and believe this one, just because I wish it to be so. Anyone hear the same thing? I know, rumors, rumors…

  • G.I.Ceo

    Someone pointed out on another site that this pictured it fake or altered. If you look at the month March is written as 03 and February is written as 2. I will just wait for the official release date from BB.

  • Icecold715

    I like how the format of the date doesn’t match the rest of the dates of the other phones

    I’m sure this holdup is a Verizon issue, not HTC. HTC probably has all the phones sitting there waiting for the green light. I bet Verizon is concerned about their network. Just imagine if they release the first 4g phone and then the owners of those phones have problems… LOL

    The problem I’m beginning to have with the Thunderbolt is that Verizon is pricing it SO much higher than everyone else. They must be very confident that we are all dumb enough to buy it. Either that or they don’t care if we do. I wanted to get this phone but may have to pay out of pocket and I’m really starting to think a little more clearly.

      I agree. Too late and too expensive. Verizon and HTC need to take lessons from Apple. I’m very disappointed. The Thunderbolt is no longer on my want list.

      Really what did you do with it? I added one the 10 million apps. See that icon

      Cool what else? umm that was it.

      Android possibilities are endless.

  • Eclipsegst4mee

    I believe Verizon decided to pay meteorologists (the only profession paid to be wrong) to choose a launch date for the phone. The wanted to stay on queue with the whole thunder and lightning thing. This can be the only logical explanation…..

  • Anonymous

    I talked with a Verizon flunky yesterday, while I was playing with the Xoom, and he told me it would be the middle of the month. I am really beginning to think that this phone is just something to get everyone worked up.

  • Anonymous

    I think people at Best Buy are just speculating as much as the people waiting for the phones. I don’t believe anything they say, not their presidents, managers and definitely not their employees. In fact, they’re probably laughing about this article as I’m writing this post. So you want us to believe that the dates are correct because “some guy” who works at Best Buy is tweeting this stuff? Not I.

    I haven’t given up on the phone because I have no reason to. Once again, no official dates have been announced so people who are saying that it’s 1, 2 or 3 months late have no proof. I understand people are tired of waiting and are anxious to get their hands on this phone, but stating that the phone is late due to your own expectations is kind of ridiculous no?

    The day it gets released or any official news on the release date, please do an article on that, thank you.

  • Sputnick

    March 10th of what year?

    At this rate, I can wait another month or 2 for something better. This has really soured me on the whole thing.

The want and wait is killing me.lol. ultimately went to Sprint traded my Droid x and incredible got to 2 evo 4g’s and can say I am happy again no more anxieties.lol

    • Anonymous

      Thunderbolt is going to kill the 4G Evo, anxieties on.

  • Eclipsegst4mee

    As I mentioned before, the article should list every date of the month of March for a release date, this way each day that gets passed by people can’t complain about the phone being delayed because every day is a new release date. Suck it up people

      So now we’re thanking those responsible for whipping everyone up into a frenzy when Verizon has never set a firm date? I know, I know, “shipping this week,” but at least they’ve been smart enough not to ever say Feb. 10th, Feb. 14th, Feb. 24th, Feb. 28th. Mar. 3. Mar. 4th. Mar. 10th. Mar. 21….

    This really is the Incredible debacle all over again. HTC is just the red headed step child at Verizon. Obviously this phone has issues which even if they get corrected, I wouldn’t trust.

    The irony is I caught the offical HTC commercial for the Thunderbolt last night during the Office. This situation is a nightmare.

    • Bullet Tooth Tony

      What if the issue is with Verizon being able to supply SIM cards? Nobody has ever mentioned that possibility yet.

      • Anonymous

        I doubt that. They have no problem with the USB modems that need them and they’ve used them in their global phones without issue.

    *yawn* This thing didn’t come out yet? Hmmm that sucks. Who knew this device would spend most of its time becoming obsolete inside a box. Technology progresses at such a rapid rate and a bigger/better device is always around the corner. I’d like to know how many street corners back this POS is going to be once it eventually hits. Better yet, Pass.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know why everybody’s so excited about this phone, the specs are good but they’re not great by any means, it’s basically the same form factor/specs as the DX, Evo, Inspire etc. It’ll be more than capable but it’s not a revolutionary phone, 4g isn’t going to be widespread for a couple years anyway. Personally I’m hoping we get a Droid 3 with 2.4 and a unlocked bootloader this year 😀

    • JG

      because its a 4g phone and i want to lock in the 30 dollar unlimited for it. They should give me a pile of shit for all I care…i want to lock in that price.

  • i think this might be an old paper..it mentions the release date of the iphone which was back a couple of weeks and also mentions some phones that were released in 2010..this might be an old sheet from back in 2010 but is just coming to us now..it might just be the first date the phone was sposed to come out in the first place and than all these february dates where an “upped” release date and this date of march tenth was the official date all along.

    • Jeremyan207

      Took the words right out of my mouth. That’s probably been an internal document for a while now, and we’re just now getting it. Honestly though, we did this to ourselves. March is looking like the release of this highly anticipated phone and we just bought into any and all rumored dates, hoping for the best. If you’re annoyed about this phone not being released yet, understand that your bubbling rage and built hype stems not from Verizon, but from you refreshing droid life every .2 seconds waiting to see the next rumored release date.

  • Lilbballer38

    im giving up on the thunderbolt. By the time it comes out it will be completely out of date! forget it! lost device.

  • LionStone

    Doesn’t mean anything to me…I didn’t get the Droid Incredible until Dec. last year…the T-Bolt can come out on April Fool’s Day for all I care… 😉 If it means getting it a little bit later for a more finished product I’ll welcome it just the same.

    • LionStone

      Clarification: If it came out sooner with glitches, I would not welcome that…

  • Slickrickie23

  • Jrer34

    big shocker here. i wish everyone would stop running with every single date that is mentioned. a source who couldnt even match the day of the week with the date caused a huge uproar and now another one. big surprise with that. every best buy is saying something different. if they are wanting to have the “perfect” launch for the phone they should realize that they kinda blew that already so just put the phone out. no one needs skype right away (assuming thats part of the problem with the release) so just get it out there already

  • UC Student

    What’s so sad about all of this is that this phone started off as a legitimate contender for people’s personal (and long term) phone, but now it’s just going to be a stop gap for the Bionic. Hell people should just wait for the LG Revolution so they can have Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

  • I must say, I truly blame Best Buy (not the best buy at all), screwed up this whole HTC Thunderbolt launch. VZ said nada, but BB kept tweeting, facebooking and screenshotting tons of misguided launch dates. Pretty messed up to lead on customers with a Feb date, take your money and then promise to have a device, to only say “oh just kidding.”

    Sucks for VZ since this really has put off a ton of potential buyers – well early adopters.

    • Frodub

      if it doesn’t come out by the end of febrero, like the commercial said, verizon will have been lying as well….

    • BGMike

      yea verizon themselves tweeted “htc thunderbolt coming out sooner then expected” and although they havent given a “offical” release date sooner then expected could be some time in may for all we know, but verizon is well aware of the expected days that are floating around the internet which originally was feb. 24th so sooner then expected sounded like feb 17th or 14th

    I am tire of the run around with the Thunderbolt. If I don’t decide to stay with AT&T and get the Atrix, I’m just going to wait for the Bionic. At least Motorola sticks to their times. Is not the first time we have a long wait and unknown arrival for a product from HTC at Verizon. The long wait for out of stock, not long after release, also occured with HTC Incredible. Come on Motorola, tell us when Bionic will be here. I’ll trust your word and will make a decision.

  • Stro

    Ummm. Why is everyone posting this as news? It is showing phones dated for release on 11/23/2010 so obviously this is a screenshot from before that date. Meaning it has no relevance today with everything that has happened. At best this was the targeted date back in November….

      Maybe, but maybe not. We didn’t know the T-Bolt was going to be called anything other than a Mecha or Incredible HD until late December. Also, the iPhone stuff was too well under wraps for this paper to exist before January.

      We’ll have to wait and see if VZW says anything tomorrow or if a new commercial pops up on TV on Sunday night which could tell us a release date for the phone.

  • I am starting to think I’ll pass. Either there are major problems with this phone they are having difficulties flushing out or their marketing people are idiots. Either way we are potentially 90 days from the bionic. I think I’ll wait. I have been waiting almost 90 days for this one….My Xoom and DX will keep me busy until then.

        when its out, you’ll know. until then, is a new story on the topic really needed for every rumored release date?????

        • DBK

          Updates are updates. These are meant for those who are keeping a close eye on it. You don’t like them, don’t read them. Easy peasy. No need to waste energy complaining about it.

  • Balticzar

    Damn. This sucks. I guess we have no choice though. I’m very eager to get my hands on this device with the front facing camera, the extra RAM, an unlocked bootloader etc. What the eff HTC and Verizon? FTLOG drop this puppy already.

        Ha you’re right. you know me too well. Damn you! :}

      why anyone would still buy this phone is beyond me. this phone is going to be released a month late. in a world where items become technologically obsolete within 3 months, youre just wasting your money. vote with your wallets and send vzw a message that giving the iphone priority was the wrong choice. furthermore, this phone wouldve been relevant had it been released in december when it was originally rumored to be released. specwise, this phone is essentially a droidx + 4g. essentially.

    • Robinsonsarah84

      I know right!

  • Fresh

    … officially done, bring on the bionic… I’ll wait

    • Technerd

      i would get the bionic but i absolutely HATE motoblur, i ruins the appeal of motorola phones for me

      • Fresh

        A point well taken… I share in your hatred of blur, in fact I still hate myself for switching from the incredible to Droid X… thank you for reminding!

        • DBK

          Except that the new Blur actually looks and performs pretty well. It makes the current Blur look like a fat, slobbering whore. 🙂

      • Bacabone

        No blur for the bionic is what I’m hearing. We can only hope.

        • MrBlur

          Not sure where you heard that, but I’d stop listening from that source since Blur is certainly on the Bionic.

          • DBK

            Lol Seriously. We have even seen it in action, so that is not even a question. That source has been drinking too much koolaid. 🙂

      • Thomas Clinard

        In a world of one-click-rooting and very good BLURLESS roms (Liberty, far and away the best DX rom I’ve tried), I wouldn’t let motoblur keep me from a good phone.

        That said, yes I too wish there were more vanilla phones and everybody stopped putting d*#$ skins on everything >: /

    • BLADE

      If I don’t decide to stay with AT&T and get the Atrix, I’m just going to wait for the Bionic. At least Motorola sticks to their times. Is not the first time we have a run around waiting for a product from HTC at Verizon. The long wait for out of stock, not long after release, also occured with HTC Incredible. Come on Motorola, tell us when Bionic will be here. I’ll trust your word and will make a decision if ATT or Verizon. Either way, MOTOROLA even with that Blur.

        I have a Droid x that I bought on launch with a promise of a late summer update to have flash installed.. they pushed the date and pushed the date and every X owner was doing this with dates and guesses and rumors on all the forums…and it was finally pushed to handsets in mid-late september, on THE LAST DAY OF SUMMER!! Nice definition of late summer.. they waited till the very last day without going outside of their deadline.. so as far as Motorola keeping to their dates, you’re very wrong…

  • TheTechMessenger

    This is starting to get out of hand. Since when did releasing a device become so darn hard?

      Seriously, we should.

        no, you ‘should’ stop posting anything TBolt related at this point. It’s making your site look more like Star Magazine in the grocery stores.

        • DBK

          And you “should” probably GTFO if you don’t like it.

          Come back when you see posts you do like.

          Please stop. I like this phone. I want this phone. Don’t troll broseph.

          I disagree “Ridiculous” this site is gaining more and more respect and notice from manufacturers every day. The crew here breaks all the news as it happens. They aren’t making things up, they are keeping their readers informed. If you don’t like it, go read engadget or one of the other crapple blogs.
