    Default It'll be worth the wait

    Just came back to my local Verizon store and got the chance to play with dummy unit they had. I have to say, I was getting annoyed with all these delays and rumored release dates..but after holding the phone, I immediately fell in love with the device. Granted it was the dummy unit but still the Thunderbolt. Didn't even want to talk to the reps about a release date, but one approached me and told me it'll be out within the next 2 weeks and that he has gone through some device training. Now let's get to the pics...

    Lol, I don't need another paper weight. Once I get the real deal, my BlackBerry will be my paper weight. But I definitely can't wait to have my own working Thunderbolt...

    It felt right. Very well built. Not too heavy and not too light. Granted it was a dummy unit.

    I think the dummy phone has better battery life than the real one

    I bet the custom "Coming Soon . . ." was easier than ripping up the fake dates, or scratching dates off every time it missed, again. At this point, yeah I will get mine but I all of the spark is gone.

    I swear that's the most beautiful handheld device I've ever seen.

    If I didn't have a Nexus One with unlimited data on AT&T, I'd get the Thunderbolt at launch. I can't give up the Nexus' free wifi hotspot for use with my Xoom.

    Any chance of using the Thunderbolt as a free wifi hotspot since it can be bought with an unlimited data plan?

    lol for real raptor! Or they can go with a whiteboard with the dry erase marker-for the ever changing "alleged" dates! Gotta save them trees!

    Default Thanks for posting these pics!!!

    I just got a Motorola X and am going to send it back soon so I can pick one of these Thunderbolts up! I've only had a Motorola Droid and now the X...can anyone tell me how different HTC is from Motorola? In the meantime I'll check other forums to see if I can find that out...

    Thanks!

    Last night I went into my local VZW store in Hillside, IL, I played with a Xoom for a while, waiting for one of the reps to get done to help me out with my Tbolt questions. (By the way, love Honeycomb, and the Xoom was pretty awesome, but I cant justify that much money for a wifi version of it, since i dont want a 2 year contract...) One of the reps finally got to me and tried to sell me on the Xoom I was messing with, and I pulled up the HTC Thunderbolt site on the Xoom and said, "I want that".
    He of course explained to me it wasn't out, and didnt know when it was coming out, but that he was waiting for it as well. I asked if they had a dummy phone, and he immediately replied no. Soon after, and after chit chatting with the rep for a while, the manager, who I have known for years being a long time VZW customer, came up to say hi. I asked him for a dummy phone, and he immediately went to get it. I held that thing for about 5 mins.

    Austin is right, the phone does just feel right. I like it. I can't wait for this thing to come out.

    The manager couldnt give me an exact date of course, but was told last week at a launch event that it would be this next week (feb 28, March 3/4).

    Having held it, I really...REALLY want this phone even more. Now we just need some official word from VZW.

    I think with root or may even the dinc trick will give you a free hotspot.

    I got to hold one a few days ago, too. I really like how it felt in the hand. Weight was hard to judge, but the size was right where I want it to be. The kickstand sucked, but I realize that part isn't anywhere close to the real thing.

    Holy smokes, i don't even know what the hell the Droid Incred trick is(I have a Nexus One) but I like the sound of it. Plus I forgot the Thunderbolt is already rooted(if I remember right)

    my blood is starting to pump...if when this thing releases folks can confirm free wifi hotspot, I'm IN!!

    slap that HTC extended battery in there and I'm ready to rock. I had a hacked sense ROM on my Nexus for awhile and really fell in love with it. Was just too buggy tho. I REALLY want this device...it seems built like a tank and with an extended battery+Sense+ HTC build quality, I think it's going to be a fantastic device.

    Could someone explain why so many people are excited about the thunderbolt? I'm not really seeing how it's so much better than an evo? It's going to be a snapdragon alongside tegra 2s. It's outdated before it even comes out.
