Is this any way for the HTC ThunderBolt
, Verizon's first LTE enabled phone,
to be treated? Released March 17th 2011 with Android 2.2 on board
, the phone was updated to Android 2.3 in September 2011
, where it has since been frozen. A tweet sent out on Wednesday from HTC USA tells us that things are going to change and that Android 4.0 is coming to the HTC ThunderBolt "soon". Of course, soon could mean anything from tomorrow to weeks from now.
The phone is obviously dated now and Android 4.1 is not going to be made available for the device. The HTC ThunderBolt is no longer available
from Verizon. But when it was the pride of Big Red's lineup, the device had a 4.3 inch WVGA display with a single-core 1GHz processor under the hood and 768MB of RAM on board. The rear and front-facing cameras weighed in at 8MP and 1.3MP respectively.
Sadly, once the update is completed, there will be no more official ones coming for the HTC ThunderBolt. No matter how buggy the device was at times
, it will always go down in the history books as the first Verizon handset to bring you LTE connectivity.
