It’s February 24th, folks, and guess what phone you can’t go out and buy right now? As the Motorola XOOM sees its self put onto store shelves, the HTC Thunderbolt has yet to be given an official launch date. Getting a bit ridiculous, isn’t it? One eager Roseville Best Buy says you may want circle March 4th on your calendar, though. Take it with a grain of salt – word from third-party retailers has been wrong before – but it’s something, dammit. [via Android Police]
[Update]: And now reports originating from BGR are backing this date up. Someone contacted them who attended a VIP event for the Thunderbolt (and took pictures for proof, of course) where they allegedly set this phone to be launched on either March 3rd or 4th. Awesome! We’ll be waiting.
PS: Yes, I realize the 4th of March isn’t a Thursday and that the tweet got it wrong. Not much of a story there.
