So, I saw an HTC-produced commercial for the T-Bolt...
So, I was over a friend's house the other day, playing cards. They had the TV tuned to Jeopardy. Suddenly, I happen to notice a commercial for the Thunderbolt. Of course, I didn't capture it, but I do vaguely remember the script. It was somewhat typical of an HTC commercial, though they certainly went with much more high-energy music than the little piano medley they usually use. The announcer's bit went something like this:
"You have a need for speed. You have a dog named Wifi. To you, 'buffering' is a dirty word. You need a phone that's as fast as you. You need the HTC Thunderbolt. With blazing fast 4G-LTE speeds, it'll easily keep up with you."
It showed off Skype video chat, and they also apparently tied the thing to a remote control helicopter by its kickstand. Don't have the video, sadly, but has anyone else seen this commercial? If so, why haven't we heard a release date, yet, when they're bombarding the airwaves with an ad blitz?

Why HTC waste money to make an ad for a "not-ready to be released" phone? I believe that even the ad is not done by verizon but still means the phone is very near since you can only buy this phone from verizon in US.
I don't worry about the release date as long as they can fine-tune the phone in its best condition. I learned a lesson from Atrix, quick release date and got many bugs. Returned it already and came back to wait for TB.
