HTC Thunderbolt, that hot LTE dual core smartphone shown at CES 2011 is now live on Best Buy’s site, that allows you to pre-order it. The product goes for $249.99 on contract, making you a Verizon client for quite some time.

You can also head out to any physical store and order the handset, if you don’t want to wait in line on the launch day. You need to pay $50 at first, which becomes a gift card and applies to your purchase, when you get the phone. As far as we know, the launch is a go on February 14th, but we’ll let you know if the Thunderbolt drops earlier than V Day.
