Best Buy taking pre-orders on HTC ThunderBolt

We have talked quite a bit about the cool HTC ThunderBolt smartphone. The launch date for the ThunderBolt was confirmed by Best Buy a while back for February 14. If you have, your eye on the new smartphone Best Buy has now announced that you can pre-order now.

Pre-orders are underway for the HTC ThunderBolt right now and it is the first 4G LTE smartphone on the Verizon network. The ThunderBolt is fast with the ability to download a song in less than four seconds on the LTE network and 20 photos can be downloaded in a minute. I looked around the Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile site and at the time of writing this, the ThunderBolt is nowhere to be found on either site.

“The HTC ThunderBolt is a groundbreaking smart phone and Best Buy couldn’t think of a better way to kick off 2011 than by offering it as a national retail exclusive to our customers,” said Scott Anderson, head of merchandising for Best Buy Mobile. “We have worked hard to provide our customers with a great selection of smart phones which now includes the HTC ThunderBolt, both versions of the iPhone 4, Samsung Nexus S, HTC EVO™ 4G and many more options.”
