We’ve been pretty psyched about HTC’s Thunderbolt ever since we first heard about it. And frankly that seems like a lifetime ago, after it’s release has been pushed further and further back. But now we have some good news and we hope that our hopes don’t get dashed yet again.

HTC posted on Facebook that the official launch date will be announced “soon, “. Well, four days from now qualifies as soon in our book. If they delay this again, people are going to start looking at other options.
