I signed up for early notification for both the iphone and the thunderbolt. Before the Iphone was release I received an email letting me know I could preorder in a few days. I must assume they will follow the same protocal with the TB which means...no email...no annoncement...no phone. There is absolutly nothing from verizon stating exactly when the phone will be released. BB started the early preorder but it was most likely based on information received from verizon months ago when they purchased all the add time you for the phone you see running now. Not really BBs fault. They had to go with what they were given from verizon. It was probably too late for big red tro pull their adds from TV also. When will it come? Who knows? They might not even make the first quarter like they first indicated. No promises were made other than those poor souls who are taking 100 phone calls a day at BB. I will feel confident about the release date when I get an email from verizon letting me know. Until then I am turning in my resignation of "team TB speculation"
