HTC Thunderbolt and Motorola Xoom Launch Feb 14 at MWC 2011?
 
 

The HTC Thunderbolt was one of the most exciting phones of CES 2011. The new-model Snapdragon processor is so fast it'll scare you, and screen and built quality is just drop-dead gorgeous. The Motorola Xoom was basically a fancy picture frame at CES, but the imminent launch of Honeycomb makes it pretty exciting.

And both of these devices may launch February 14 at MWC 2011. Phandroid has heard from trusted sources that the Thunderbolt will definitely launch at MWC. And there's evidence that Motorola Xoom marketing info was sent out to Verizon agents along with the Thunderbolt info.

The Thunderbolt is rumored to be launching for $199 with a 2-year contract. It will apparently ship with a 32 GB microSD card, which is just phenomenal. That alone almost makes up for the subsidized price. In addition, the Thunderbolt will apparently support simultaneous voice and data. So you can keep browsing while you take a call on your headset.

If Motorola's Xoom launches at the same time, we can expect to see it undercut the iPad by a fair chunk. Early rumors place the cost at between $250 and $299...which is almost certainly the subsidized price that will only come with a contract. So, in reality, the iPad will still be the "budget" option.

The WiFi-only Xoom is set to launch in April. There's no telling how much more expensive it will be, but that release date makes a February reveal for the 3G model seem that much more likely.
