If you still refuse to believe the HTC Thunderbolt will actually be available this Thursday, March 17th, I don’t blame you. If you are a bit more optimistic, I implore you to see the above snippet from Verizon’s Equipment Guide for the Thunderbolt, which confirms the very same St. Patrick’s Day release date we first heard of last week. Add this to the various tweets confirming the 17th, news that the phone’s status has changed from “quantity on order” to “quantity on stock,” and a pretty convincing voicemail that one reader shared with us stating the date and I say this is all about settled. Let the Droid Bionic release date rumors commence!
[Update]: Wirefly will begin a pre-order for the Thunderbolt tonight/tomorrow morning at 3:00 AM EST with orders shipping March 17th.
