Best Buy sales ad with HTC Thunderbolt

All signs point to a Feb 14 release date for the HTC Thunderbolt, and according to next week’s Best Buy advertisement, you will soon be able to pre-order the first LTE phone on Verizon at your local Best Buy.  The ad mentions the pre-order with a $50 deposit, and has all the right buzz around LTE speeds, but offers no concrete release date or any hidden specs or features.

Verizon has already hinted that we will see the Thunderbolt sooner than expected, and this is more proof that the Thunderbolt will soon be on the shelves and ready for sale.  If you’re still on the fence about snagging the T-Bolt, hit the forums and see what others are saying to help your decision.  Thanks taesungx1!

The HTC Inspire 4G has been with us only a few hours, but we thought we’d share a quick overview of what the handset has to offer. As we mentioned in our HTC Inspire 4G unboxing post, there’s not much that we have not already seen with the HTC Desire HD, but it’s certainly nice [...]

As we get set for the Honeycomb event today we figured we’d share this awesome new live wallpaper with you all since, this event is the reason it was created. Honeycomb wall is a new live wallpaper that is now available for download in the Android Market which adds an embedded calendar and clock to your home screen as well as plenty of honeycomb bees that fly around. If you opt for the donation version you’ll get some added features:

  • Buzzing, touchable bees
  • Battery level indicator
  • Set own image background
  • On device editor to change bees location, size, etc

All in all it’s pretty awesome to say the least. The donation version does cost $.99 cents in the Android Market but that’s a rather small price to be paying for something this cool. Video and download can be found after the break. [Android Central forums]

T-Mobile LG G-Slate

At long last, after the tease at CES, T-Mobile has finally given details on its Android tablet — the LG G-Slate. And we’re simultaneously scratching our heads and dying to get our hands on this thing. Let’s dive into the bullet points.

  • 8.9-inch "3D-capable multitouch display" — with the aid of 3D glasses
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • Rear-facing stereoscopic video recorder, records at 1080p
  • 5MP camera with LED flash
  • 720p playback on the tablet, 1080p via HDMI output
  • 32GB of internal memory
  • Internal gyroscope, accelerometer
  • T-Mobile HSPA+ data, plus Wifi

That definitely sounds like quite the beast. We’re going to withhold judgment on the whole 3D screen and video recording thing (and we might well get a look at both during Google’s Honeycomb event). We just have to hope that it’s better than what we saw from the Sharp Galapogos at CES – and even then we might still need some convincing.

No word yet on official pricing and availability, though March 23 has been rumored. Check out the full presser after the break. [T-Mobile G-Slate product page]
