Best Buy may have retail exclusivity on the HTC Thunderbolt from Verizon Wireless, but it looks like that honor will only extend to brick-and-mortar stores. Online retail giant Amazon has the LTE handset listed as “coming soon” with the tag line: “The HTC ThunderBolt 4G will be available for purchase starting 2/14.” Now, we’re hoping purchase actually means purchase, not pre-order. February 14th and 24th have been the two most popular release prognostications amongst tech sites, and Best Buy’s press release did say the handset would be available in “mid-February.” Could the 14th and not the 24th be the launch date for the device? We should know soon enough.

Thanks, Ryan!
