Amazon Temporarily Slashes Price On HTC Thunderbolt

If you've been itching to get your hands on Verizon Wireless' hot new 4G LTE smartphone, there's no time like the present. For a limited time, Amazon is offering the HTC Thunderbolt with a Verizon Wireless contract for a reduced price of $129.99. This special pricing is only available through midnight Pacific Time on Monday, April 25.

As you may recall from our review of the Thunderbolt, the phone has some very powerful hardware including a 1GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera as well as a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, a 4.3-inch WVGA screen, 8GB of built-in memory, and a 32GB microSD card.

We also mentioned in our review that the Thunderbolt's original price of $249.99 with a two-year contract is $50 higher than the popular $199 price we've seen with many phones today. Although the extra 50 bucks may not be a complete deal breaker, we're willing to bet most people would rather have the extra change in their pocket.

For now, the HTC Thunderbolt is still the only smartphone from Verizon Wireless that will connect to Verizon's 4G LTE network. This will soon change however, as Verizon Wireless and Samsung will launch the Droid Charge on April 28.

I wonder if they are dropping the price to sell a bunch of them in anticipation of the Samsung Droid Charge being released that definitely seems to be a hot looking phone with some hard hitting specs as well.

I don't know, maybe.....the thunderbolt was 250 at release and the charge is supposed to be 299. They could keep it at 250 and still be undercutting the charge. 130 is an awesome price for this phone, and it includes a 32gig memory card.

I still have the my HTC Touch from Sprint and it has served me well these past few years. I am due for an upgrade but I will wait until HTC releases their next Sprint phone and see what options it offers.

Initially this phone seemed to be destined to be a big seller, but it seems to me with the difficulties with the capabilities and throughput on this unit really hurt it. I personally would rather have the Bionic which seem to be basically a better phone than this or the Atrix!

I am not seeing the phone for this price on amazon.
