    I call BS on this until someone shows me the phone in their hands later today..... I still think the release date is 2/24/11. Next week Thursday can't come fast enough......

    Nonetheless, I work at Union Square New York, NY where there is a 24 hour best buy. I'm hitting it up at 9AM to check for my bolt before I head to work!

    There's a difference between having inventory and releasing it for sale. I've seen BB Mobiles stock and item behind the counter, locked in cabinets that was still a week away from release.

    I just called Verizon and they said not today. The CSR I spoke with said the 18th according to her records. She did not have pricing yet. Happily, I can renew my contract on the 21st so I can check out how everyone likes theirs (I'm concerned about the battery life... my Incredible barely makes it a half of a day without a huge oversized extended battery.)

    When you click on the OP's link it takes you to the Confirmed date of 24th on Android Central. Am I missing something here?

    Until we get one we wont know how long the battery will last but it makes since that with the new efficient processor it should have pretty decent battery life. Also it will have an updated 2.2.1 OS and updated Sense if I read the stats right. It definitely runs smoother and faster then the EVO. Fingers crossed.

    Fingers crossed here too. Can't believe it is already rooted.

    I was comparing this to the EVO because the EVO has a bigger battery but terrible battery life. I have an Incredible and know how bad the battery is but trying to compare it to the Thunderbolt would be impossible given the screen size. ;)

    I've noticed it too. It's like foreplay, haha. But the thing is, I can't imagine a phone releasing without an official release date. Maybe I'm just not aware of how these things work, and I'd love to be wrong, because I'd love to have this phone ASAP. But I'm concerned it will be a bit.

    I'm assuming, just me, announcement today.

    Most of the ads are going off probably still due to the fact today was the original date.

    Yea, you don't wait till the day of to promote a phone. You usually get a week or two to let everyone know it's coming.

    ....and than you die. :D




    Dont be too concerned because its will be bad. LOL Not many smartphones last more than a day with moderate use. This one will be no exception. Far as I can tell the blackberrys are the only smartphones that have decent battery life, htc is the worst unfortunately. I will probably get a thunderbolt regardless.:cool:
