HTC ThunderBolt Rooftop Ad Released

Oh man the ThunderBolt has such big potential for amazing commercials that we're surprised there haven't been more of them. This is the first commercial we've seen post-MWC 2011 (isn't it funny that conventions have become our holiday markers?) Have a look at it below and let us know if it pumps you up to the level that tiny announcements about its release date and pricing do. Then, just for kicks, tell us if you actually know how fast and nice the phone is, or if you're just super excited because clearly ThunderBolt is the greatest name for a phone since BlackBerry.

Wirefly unboxes the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt

Wireless retailer Wirefly has unboxed a pre-production model of the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt and posted the video on Youtube.  The phone comes in a mysterious black package that has all the traditional accouterments.  And aside from some slightly comedic difficulty getting the phone out of the box, there's some really interesting details.

Verizon rumored to offer 4G plans at 3G rates

With presales having begun for the HTC Thunderbolt with Verizon, the wireless carrier is rumored to planning to continue their 4G LTE data service at existing 3G data rates. Originally tested last December, the $30 price point will, however, probably involved a restrictive data cap to keep heavy users from bogging down the network.  Originally, in limited markets, 4G was to carry an additional $10 a month price point. But since Verizon is rolling it's LTE network in over 200 cities nationwide, perhaps there's not longer a need to charge the additional fees.

HTC ThunderBolt Given Away Free at Verizon Locations Feb 12

It has begun! The free wars. Not that giving away smartphones for free (with contract) is a brand new idea, but giving away a phone of this magnitude certainly is a bold move by Verizon. Apparently if you attend the grand opening of at least one Verizon location in Northampton, MA, you'll be eligible to win a basically free HTC Thunderbolt and walk out of the store with it that day. Everyone else in the world who isn't inside the network will have to wait until February 14th for the honor of holding this phone for their very own.
