Default HTC Thunderbolt in Europe?

Hello everyone

I decided recently to get a smartphone and I have been narrowing down the possible choices the last couple of days. I have come to the conclusion that I will go for the LG Optimus 2x or the HTC Thunderbolt.

Now, I would definitely prefer the Thunderbolt however I have heard someone saying that it might not be available in Europe. Does anyone actually know if this is true or not?

Thanks in advance!

From what I have heard the Thunderbolt will not be crossing the pond. I believe the Europe / Asia version of the Thunderbolt will be the Incredible HD or whatever the new Incredible is called.

I wrote that opposite. I meant to say Desire HD is similar to TB expect it has front facing camera and LTE.
