Don't make my word for it, read for yourself homies...

Twitter

My phone conversation in short;

[BestBuy Store 129 in Roseville C.A. : "Verizon Stores should have the phone available tomorrow (February 24). We were supposed to launch but the shipments have been delayed. It looks like we'll be ready to launch Friday March 4th! If we get our shipments (UPS) before then we will launch once they're here..." I don't make this **** up. Call 916-780-5969 and ask for yourself!]

While I don't doubt that it's been delayed, one individual Best Buy store's twitter account should not be viewed as anything but unofficial gossip in relation to the release date for a national product.

First I don't buy any tweets from BB, more specifically from a SINGLE store's twitter account. The last time a BB store tweeted anything about the TB it was total BS. I also don't see their "exclusive nationwide retailer" not having them on the exact same day as Verizon stores. Fed Ex and UPS do work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

HTC Thunderbolt launch has been delayed :( It looks like it may launch on Thursday, March 4th. Stay tuned for more info.

this is their tweet, but March 4th is Friday. Don't they read before they post?

I called about that and the person (nameless) said that they Best Buy mobile Supervisor accidentally put Thursday and meant Friday...

March 4th, 2011 right?

We're still all in the 2011 bracket right? I know it's been bumping up all the time. Hard to keep track with all these date changes.

(message not directed to OP but to vzw and bb).
