HTC Thunderbolt launch delay by the iPad 2 confirmed

It seems that the launch date for the HTC Thunderbolt at Verizon is once again slipping. But this time it isn't due to bad battery life or any other technical issue. We've been able to confirm what we reported yesterday that the delay is actually the fault of Apple and it's March 11th launch date for the iPad2. Apparently, it's problematic to launch two major platforms at the same time due to staff training. And since Apple's date isn't likely to slip, the Thunderbolt will have to wait.

Before you start cursing out Samsung, remember most companies do this including Apple who charges $600 for their iPhone which is estimated to cost around $200? Why do the companies do this?

Alongside the upcoming store will be a tablet release directly competing with the iPad, this of course, filling the gap that the Kindle has in competition with the famed Apple tablet.
