    This is probably the exact reason that Verizon isn't announcing a release date or advertising it to a massive extent. Because we're already doing it for them.

    Exactly, its Viral advertising, it worked well to hype the heck out of Halo 2 for Bungie as well as the OG Droid.

    I won't lie, my job is really boring and I must've searched that like 50 times today single-handedly.

    It's also the reason that its INCREDIBLY STUPID that they haven't said ANYTHING yet. I'm thinking there is some crossover in those searches. People search the TBolt, read a few posts, find out that there is NO release date and that everything since January 6th has resembled a clusterfook, and searched one of the other phones.

    I'm also guilty of the Thunderbolt Google-gate. I've been searching this phone for the past week and a half trying to decide what I want to get next. I'm looking for accessories such as desktop cradle and car mount (reasons why I still love my droid), 4g coverage, etc. I would like this phone to be released already so that those of you getting the TB "next week" can review them before I buy :)

    I was just thinking about that today. I studied PR in college, and what is happening right now is a GOLD MINE for Verizon AND for Best Buy. They are getting all this advertising for no cost to them. They're riding the wave right now, but as some point, before it drops too far, they'll need to release to capitalize on the phone.

    I am guilty of searching 'verizon htc thunderbolt' and clicking the news tab several times each day. I was a little worried when the news tab wasn't working for me for 2 days there that Google had cut me off haha
