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.

HTC ThunderBolt Coming “Sooner Than Expected”

It appears that the February 24th release date for the HTC ThunderBolt from Verizon just wasn't soon enough. Verizon's just sent out a tweet telling the world that "many have waited for the iPhone" but that it doesn't matter since the ThunderBolt will be out, yes, "sooner than expected." Maybe they'll have em today at the Google event? Nah.

HTC ThunderBolt Simultaneous Data and Voice Over 3G Confirmed, Again

When we first heard that the HTC ThunderBolt would support simultaneous data and voice over 3G on Verizon's network, we were a little skeptical.

Seems kinda like this should have always been a feature... right?

Verizon Employees Begin Training For the HTC ThunderBolt

The HTC ThunderBolt was one of the most impressive devices at this year's CES. Many eager customers are awaiting an official release date, and it seems that this date is nearing as Verizon employees are already in training. The impressive device will not only be the first first to support voice and data at the same time (something even the Verizon iPhone can't do) and will feature both HTC Sense 2.0 and support Skype video calls. The leaked slide, shows some features that Verizon employees will showcase when they're selling the device. If this is any sort of indication, we should expect to see the device within the next few months. [Via AndroidCentral]
