Verizon’s Thunderbolt Launch Date Might Be Delayed, Stormy Weather Ahead
Update: Checkout our HTC Thunderbolt first look.
It’s been a little while since we heard about Verizon’s hotly anticipated Thunderbolt phone, which achieves simultaneous data and voice, something that has been a thorn in Big Red’s side, especially since AT&T has promoted this capability in their latest batch of commercials featuring the iPhone.
While the carrier has remained mum over the launch date of the Thunderbolt, word has leaked out that it might have been pushed back until March 10th, but that, to a large degree, seems to be conjecture at this point.
If for some reason you forget all the specs associated with the Thunderbolt, here is a quick refresher:
