The above photograph reeks of a coordinated leak, as it was sent to a handful of tech-centric sites and forums at around 11:30PM last night. What we’re allegedly looking at is a Best Buy Mobile launch roadmap that lists Verizon’s HTC ThunderBolt handset with a March 10th release date. We’re assuming that the sheet is quite old — it has a November 11, 2010 Continuum launch listed — making it unclear how much stock we can put in this one. Again, due to the timing and distribution pattern of this photo, we thought it was worth mentioning.
Also of note: that tweet from a Best Buy location tipping a March 4th launch has been deleted. So maybe the 4th is the date.
Come on Verizon, people want this handset and you, obviously, have it. Stop being stingy.
