HTC Thunderbolt pre-orders next week at Best Buy? (updated)

By Hayley Tsukayama

As people rush to pre-order the Verizon iPhone, it's easy to forget that there are other anticipated handsets out there.

But what looks like a Best Buy flyer on Android Central's Web site appears to announce that the HTC Thunderbolt, Verizon's first 4G phone, is expected to be promoted in Best Buy's ads next week, soliciting pre-orders.

Rumor has it that the HTC Thunderbolt pre-orders will start on Feb. 14, and a tweet from Verizon indicated that the handset will come "sooner than we expected."

Verizon has said that it expects the Thunderbolt to available by mid-2011.

1:10 p.m. A wireless-industry source tells us that one other retailer will start taking pre-orders online next week and will have the phone on sale on the 13th.
