Release dates, Verizon! We want release dates! Much has been rumored since CES regarding two of their upcoming devices – the HTC Thunderbolt and the Motorola XOOM – and we’ve been seeking validation for both of them.

A FaceBook post from a Best Buy in Grand Rapids, though, suggests the HTC Thunderbolt will see a February 14th release date – just as we saw in several earlier leaks and just as we heard from several independent tipsters.

The Motorola XOOM received a date too: February 24th. We figured this would be pretty close to the Thunderbolt considering training and marketing materials for the tablet were sent out at around the same time. And they’d confirmed late February all along, anyway.

But we still don’t have official confirmation. It’s a recurring theme with Verizon, unfortunately, but we’ve learned to deal with it. Don’t be surprised to see them announce the Thunderbolt’s landing date just a couple of days before it launches. [via Droid-Life]

[Update]: Aaaaaaaand the post is gone. That pretty much confirms it’s true. ;)
