Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt may be launched sooner than expected

Verizon has yet to announce an exact launch date for the HTC Thunderbolt – its first 4G LTE smartphone.

Until that happens, Verizon hinted at the fact that the Thunderbolt “may” come sooner than expected – in a somewhat vague tweet which also mentions the CDMA iPhone (available for pre-order tomorrow).

Sure enough, it’s not explicitly said that the Thunderbolt would come sooner. But since the iPhone will certainly not be launched earlier than February 10, Verizon probably talks about the Android smartphone when it says “sooner than we expected.”

Not long ago, we did hear that the Thunderbolt could be released in the last week of this month – and now it looks like chances are high for this to happen.

The Thunderbolt is pretty much a redesigned HTC Desire HD with support for LTE, featuring Android 2.2, a 4.3 inch WVGA display, Sense UI, Dolby Surround sound, Wi-Fi, GPS, 8MP camera, HD video recording, 1GHz processor, and a kickstand.

    I, for one, am looking forward to getting away from AT&T and Apple (got an iPhone 3G that I’ve hated since about 60 days into my 2-year plan). Since my plan ended two days ago, it looks like I’ll be rocking a Thunderbolt soon. Couldn’t possibly be worse than what I’ve got. Goodby Apple, goodbye iTunes, goodbye “walled garden,” and–hopefully–goodbye “spotty coverage!”
