It looks like all the conversations come to the HTC Thunderbolt, as several hours ago I have wrote the Thunderbolt’s launch is delayed and we don’t know when it’ll be available on stores. Do not hurry to be happy as this information is not change, though according some rumors the phone will be available on March 4th, but this time we are going to tell you the Thunderbolt is priced $699.99.
Besides the fact the HTC USA’s official store listed the smartphone at $699.99 without any contract, and it has priced for $299.99 then 249.99 at Best Buy on contract, we have grabbed another information related with the launch delay. The phone has got a battery issue, i.e. the handsets provides only 3-4 hours of battery life with the LTE radio turned on, and other fixes weren’t successful. But there would be a firmware update coming in the near future which will address this issue.
Though we believe the company is doing its best to launch this awesome device, which is going to be the first 4G smartphone in the market, but many things disturb to think it’ll be available soon. Probably you remember the TV ads that have been live on Verizon’s YouTube channel for almost a week, but now the Big Red has removed them and no one can be viewed anymore in any capacity including the rooftop spot.
So we tend to think, the issues are serious and they need more time to be solved, so the HTC Thunderbolt will be launched certainly, but when it’ll happen we don’t know. And is everybody ready to pay $700 for the first 4G LTE smartphone?
