Wirefly, Verizon memo point to March 17 for Thunderbolt

updated 06:50 pm EDT, Mon March 14, 2011

Launch said to be through "All Channels"

Wirefly and yet another leaked memo appear to corroborate several existing rumors pointing to March 17 as the launch date for HTC's Thunderbolt handset. An alleged screenshot of a Verizon equipment guide, which was posted on Droid Life, shows the 17th as the carrier's launch date for the Thunderbolt sold through "all channels."

Separately, online retailer Wirefly has begun distributing e-mails that confirm March 17 as the ship date. Boy Genius Report posted a copy of the message, which also suggests the device will be ready for pre-order at 3am EST tonight.

"No Skype, as previously reported, but ... simultaneous voice/data capability is alive and well!" the e-mail states.
