A tweet from the Roseville California Best Buy has informed us that the much-anticipated HTC ThunderBolt won’t be hitting shelves until March 4, despite expectations of a launch before the end of the month. Unfortunate, but the minor delay will be little more than an irritation for those itching to get their hands on Verizon’s first LTE handset.
Besides being LTE-capable, the HTC ThunderBolt is a beast; it runs Android 2.2 Froyo with Sense customizations on top, has a 4.3-inch WVGA display, 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash plus front-facing camera, 8 GB of storage with up to a 32 GB microSD memory card, 1 GHz processor with 768 MB of RAM, and the usual stuff like Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, and EV-DO for when that mind-blowing 4G fails you. Check out our hands-on for a closer look.
The ThunderBolt won’t be the only LTE-capable Android device available on Verizon for long, though – the Motorola Xoom tablet just went on sale today, and in a few months you’ll be able to mail that sucker in and have it upgraded to 4G. As far as the HTC ThunderBolt goes, the pricetag is expected to hit around $299 on a two-year contract, and in-store preorders are still on if you’re worried about locking one down on launch day.
