HTC Thunderbolt’s price to be $249 or $299 (on contract)
Verizon has still not announced the official price of the HTC Thunderbolt, although the new Android smartphone’s launch date is getting closer and closer.
Thankfully, BestBuy has included the Thunderbolt in its latest buyer’s guide (check out page 8). According to the guide, the handset will cost $299 with a new 2-yr contract agreement – just like Verizon’s iPhone 4 32GB.
Now, we may be talking about Verizon’s first 4G LTE smartphone here, but $299 on contract is unexpectedly expensive.
Sure enough, this price is by no means confirmed. Even more, BGR reports that there’s another BestBuy flyer which shows the price to be only $249.99.
The Thunderbolt should become available starting February 28 – we’ll see then if it’s going to cost $299, or $249 (or maybe less, but I doubt it).
