We’ve just gotten word (and the above image) from one of our tipsters that accessories for the HTC Thunderbolt are beginning to roll into Best Buy despite a supposed delay in the original release schedule of Verizon’s first 4G LTE handset. What we are looking at here is two cases for the device, one being the Platinum case with belt clip retailing for $34.99 and the other being a gel case by Rocketfish that will go for $24.99.
Best Buy typically gets product cases and accessories a week or so before launch, so maybe there is still hope the rumored February 14th release date for the Thunderbolt will stick. A last minute delay by Verizon, however, wouldn’t have much bearing on ship dates for third-part accessories. We still await official word from Big Red.
