We've talked about the Thunderbolt release date for the longest time, but now it is time to talk about the real price of the elusive phone. There have been many rumors floating around that Best Buy is going to launch the HTC Thunderbolt with a $299 price tag, but we're pretty sure that is a typo. We just got this pic from one of our connections clearly showing the HTC Thunderbolt for $249 with a 2-year agreement or upgrade. Was anyone really scared away from Best Buy from rumors?? Let us know in the comments below.
