Pricing for HTC Thunderbolt Adds $50 Premium

Advertisement

If you thought Verizon was going to price their first LTE smartphone at a level greater than its typical ceiling for new high-end smartphones, you’d be right. Android Central has procured screenshots showing that the minimum advertised price for the HTC Thunderbolt will be $249.99 with a two year contract. Compared to the $199.99 price seen with the Droid X, Droid 2, and several others, the $50 premium might be considered an “LTE tax” for those wanting to be on the cutting edge of technology. As we now know, Verizon is applying another $50 premium for those wanting to buy the Verizon iPhone off-contract.
