We expect both of these devices to launch in February – the Motorola XOOM and HTC Thunderbolt, that is. The problem is we don’t know when exactly: we’ve heard rumors of dates ranging from the beginning, the exact middle, and near the end of that month. None of that has been confirmed nor denied except for Verizon explicitly confirming the XOOM for February.
But an internal shot shows Verizon will be sending poster material to their affiliates – such as Best Buy and mall kiosks – at the same time for both devices. I think it’s safe to say that when one device’s release date is finally announced, the other’s should be very soon to follow. The hard part is getting Verizon to cough that information up. We’ll keep an eye out for any more we’re able to dig up.
