HTC Thunderbolt slated for February 24 launch?

updated 07:55 pm EST, Thu February 10, 2011

Verizon has yet to officially confirm timing

HTC may now be ready to launch the Thunderbolt on February 24, after missing the rumored launched date of February 14, sources have told the Boy Genius Report. The information corroborates separate reports pointing to the same date, which pushes the device several weeks behind the iPhone 4 launch on Verizon's network.

The sources did not provide details regarding a reason for the delay, though the issues are believed to be related to the phone's Wi-Fi hotspot functionality. The last-minute troubles had reportedly resulted in an internal memo with "no ETA," leaving the timing vague.

Best Buy outlets and direct Verizon sales are expected to bring the Thunderbolt on the 24th.
