HTC ThunderBolt price seemingly confirmed by Best Buy ad [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Yesterday we saw the HTC ThunderBolt's February 24th launch date all but confirmed, and today we've got the other most important bit of launch info: price. Thanks to next week's Best Buy ad, it's been confirmed that the TBolt will launch with a price tag of $249.99 with a two-year contract. Of course, the more contract-averse among us also have the option of buying Verizon's first 4G handset for $749.99 sans any sort of commitment.
We've known about the ThunderBolt's potential pricing for some time now, and since its a speedy 4G-capable handset, it shouldn't really come as much of a surprise that Verizon will charge more for the ability to access its LTE network. Some customers may not be willing to buy a phone with a $250 on-contract price, but if I can get "unlimited" 4G data with it for only $30 per month, I might be willing to take the plunge. What about you?
UPDATE: Droid-Life has the same XOOM pricing that we saw earlier this week, too, further confirming that the $799.99 price tag is legit.
