    With Verizon about to release one of the most anticipated devices in their 2011 lineup, the HTC Thunderbolt, it's no surprise that there have been a plethora of accessories being released as well, to give eager customers something to buy with the device. If you are purchasing one of these amazing devices, one of the smartest things you can do is to purchase a protective case with it. Over the course of time, even the most careful of us will have accidents and drop or scratch the device. HTC Thunderbolt cases can easily become the difference between a disaster and a good laugh.

    Red Rubberized Protector Case

    Red Thunderbolt Case Some people need the absolute best protection for their mobile device that money can buy, but if you never drop or misuse your device, there is no reason to spend $20 on a case. For those people who just want a little protection for their HTC Thunderbolt, there is the Red Rubberized Protector Case. The two pieces easily snap around the device, and have openings for all the buttons and features on the ThunderBolt. The case is slightly textured, making it easier to hold on to than a slick case or a naked device. The case probably won't hold up to a strong drop or crack, but will completely protect the back and sides from minor dings and scratches.

    Purple Argyle Silicone Skin

    Purple thunderbolt Skin The Purple Argyle Silicone Skin is made from a high-quality soft gel that will keep dings and scratches from showing up on your new HTC Thunderbolt device. The case just slips around your device, providing access to all buttons, ports and features while spicing up the device with a sleek purple argyle pattern. The skin is waterproof, but since it doesn't completely encase your device I would avoid getting it wet, as your smartphone is decidedly not waterproof. To add some spice to an already great product, this case is currently being offered as part of a kit that includes a car charger and screen protector.

    Skull Design Protective Hard Crystal Case

    Skull Case Who says that protecting your investment always has to be serious business? This Crystal hard case features all the benefits that you love about hard plastic cases, like the ease of install and the rubberized feel, but it also adds a touch of flair to your device. A skull design may not be as avant-garde as it would have been in the 1970s, but when your other options are bland red and standard white, why not decide to have some interesting artwork on the back of your Thunderbolt.
