HTC Thunderbolt: Latest Verizon Ad Release – Video

We’ve been keeping our readers up-to-date with all the latest news and rumors surrounding the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon, due for release any day now. We’ve published many articles on this, including choosing it to be in our pick of some of the best upcoming Android smartphones, but lately we’ve noted many comments from readers getting increasingly annoyed about there still being no confirmed release date.

We’ve published quite a few posts about the chopping-and-changing release date alone and in our last article on this it looked as though it was set for February 28. Still nothing firm though. Then earlier today even the pricing information on the Thunderbolt got confusing as Best Buy currently had two listings with different prices. You can see our article about that here.

We noted on that post that it was about time that Verizon and Best Buy got their acts together and made things official as a lot of people were getting pretty fed up. Even those people who have pre-ordered the phone are no better off as far as a release date confirmation is concerned.

Now we’ve got more news today that although Verizon don’t seem to have the time to fill consumers in on official details of the Thunderbolt, another Verizon ad for the phone has appeared on YouTube. We heard of this from Quentyn Kennemer over on Phandroid. We’ve previously told of a Verizon Thunderbolt teaser on video and this is a new one with a Spanish audio. You can see the video below this story but we can’t help thinking that many people would prefer to just hear a simple release date instead of all the teasing.

Scott Webster over on Android Guys also reports on the new ad teaser and also tells of another online version of it, which should be live any day now. If you want to find out more about the HTC Thunderbolt you can find details on the HTC product page for it here. How do you feel about yet another ad just to keep you on the edges of your seats? Would you rather just have confirmation of the release date and price? Let us know with your comments.

    Who cares when the release date is. I will just wait until the next promo card comes in the mail for $50-$80 off. I usually get one every 6-8 weeks. By then maybe they will have all the kinks worked out and the rush will be over. Then everybody will be up in arms about THE NEXT BIG THING to come. New phones are obsolete when they are released anyway. Companies are already working to get the "new and improved" model out there. Don't worry; be happy. By the time this one is released, everyone will be due for another upgrade!
