We just received a tip that confirms Best Buy will not be carrying the Verizon iPhone at launch, but it seems as if the retailer will be receiving something for its troubles. According to our source, Best Buy will have the “exclusive retail sale” rights for the HTC ThunderBolt. We’ll see if this pans out, and as exciting as the HTC ThunderBolt is, there’s no substitute for Verizon iPhone mania.
