HTC ThunderBolt gets Gingerbread within the next few months
When Droid Life reader John noticed that the Bluetooth functionality on his HTC ThunderBolt didn't work too well, he did the most logical thing that came to mind and contacted HTC customer support. Little did he know, that the email that he was about to receive in reply will do more than just guiding him through the Bluetooth issue. After outlining the probable causes for the customer's problem, the HTC support representative was kind enough to mention the company's intentions to release a software update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the HTC ThunderBolt within the second quarter of this year. That ought to make Verizon's hottest smartphone right now even a tad hotter.

When the HTC ThunderBolt launched some 11 days ago, it arrived with Android 2.2 Froyo, which wasn't bad, of course, but still had some room for improvement. An update to Gingerbread was pretty much expected at some point in the future, it was only a matter of time before we stumble upon a tip on the matter. Moreover, it is always great to hear the news from a trustworthy source that an HTC representative is.

Don't be stupid. How are they desperate? Its a software update that some people are actually interested in. If you didn't care, why did you post in the first place?

You guys do a lot of complaining over subject content, but you return to this site like news-starved zealots and read every post to determine just how 'not newsworthy' it is. Looks liek Phone Arena is doing something right - feeding you so you can continue to complain about the portions.

Droid x and incredible are both getting 2.3 soon yes I would say the thunderbolt getting 2.3 is news worthy considering how much the Droid xs performance has increased with the update.

Big deal. I've been running Gingerbread on my OG Droid since last Thursday.
