I worked for Alltel 10-11 yrs ago as a data sales engineer. I have some of the folks that I used to work with on my Facebook. One of the guys I used to work with is now a regional sales manager. A couple of weeks ago I posted on his wall asking when the Thunderbolt will be released. he replied that he didn't know but wanted it as well. That's pretty much par for the course the last few weeks. He posted on my wall late Friday evening "Thunderbolt on 17th!". I have no reason to disbelieve him and my reason for believing him is that he was always a stand up guy with me. So there you go, take it for what it's worth. Sorry for adding to the rumor mill. I didn't post this earlier because I thought there might be an announcement this weekend.
