The last report that we had regarding the release date of the HTC Thunderbolt was true after the expose of Imran Shahid in his twitter account. Tomorrow, March 17, 2011 is the day that all Android fans have been waiting for as it will be the official release date of the much awaited HTC Thunderbolt by Verizon Wireless.
At last, after more than a month of waiting, the first 4G LTE phone can now be bought by consumers in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at Verizon Wireless for $249.99 with a new two-year customer agreement starting tomorrow, March 17, 2011. This was confirmed by an official press release by Verizon Wireless released on March 15, 2011, two days before its scheduled release date. For those who don’t want a two-year contract with Verizon Wireless, you can buy the phone at Best Buy stores at a retail price of $749.99 or opt for an early termination fee of $350.
With the HTC ThunderBolt, customers will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan and a 4G LTE data package. Nationwide Talk plans begin at $39.99 monthly access and an unlimited 4G LTE data plan start is $29.99 monthly access.
An HTC Thunderbolt Mobile Phone, lithium-ion battery, charger, and owner’s manual are included in the package.
