HTC Thunderbolt pops up on ads, 8MP camera confirmed
The mysterious HTC Thunderbolt had specifications leaked, photos taken and monikers changed before it popped up in an advertisement, which confirmed that the device comes with an 8-megapixel camera. Video chat capabilities and support for HD video on the yet unveiled handset were also confirmed.

This confirms previously leaked information about an 8-megapixel camera, but does not add any certainty to the rumor of a 1.2GHz Snapdragon MSM8960 dual-core processor. But hey, if that turns out to be true, we would not mind!

For the time being however, we will tone down our expectations. Well, all the rest about the HTC Thunderbolt / HTC Mecha / HTC Droid Incredible HD will be revealed just in several days when CES kicks off in Vegas. Stay tuned to our feed as we will cover the event as it happens and bring you all the best of the latest phones.

You don't realize TV on mobile phones is old news for most of the world.

You are dumb enough to not realize 8MP is obsolete compared to the 12.1 and 13.2 MP cameras in Asia.

You still don't get it that front facing cameras are old and have been around for a long time.

yeah those 12.1mp and 13.2mp are probably Nokias that have an obsolete Symbian OS.. I'm in Asia often and many of them think they have a smart phone because they can take high quality pictures but nothing else...

You don't realize how obnoxious you sound.
You are dumb enough not to realize that no one cares what your opinion is re: cameras.
You still don't get it that those type of comments get old very quickly.

Oh by the way. Do your research. The human eye can't see anything above 8megapixels. Thus, the only reason to get more in a camera is to blow up pictures for editing and distribution. People who do this... Actually have a real digital camera. So its not a "bigger is better" idea here, why do it if there is no point? Answer, to shut people like you up. :)

This is a glorified evo for Verizon.

RAWRZELLERS....I agree with you, this country is so behind when it comes t the specs of phones, i cant under stand why the FCC holds back the evolution of phones when were 10 years behind the rest of the world when it comes to tech in phones.....

As I see you don't understand that understand is one word, its easy to realise why you can't understand it...

At the end of the day, it's just a phone.

doesn't have as much to do with the fcc as it does with the carriers if they offer you the next best thing today how will they get you to renew your contract tommorow! so in the land of the free the carriers tell you what phone you can have now!

Ummm, this has to be a dual core...think of it honeycomb's specifications, it needs at least a nvidea tegra 2 processor, and since its a new phone it should get honeycomb right?

Having a feature phone with a 13 mp camera and front camera does not make us behind. Ios and android were made in us and they are on the best phones

All of US made OSes suck. How crazy. Not.

Windows, Mac OS X, Unix and Linux are all made in US as well, please don't tell me you never used Windows before as that is US made OS.

The comment you posted are most probably using a US-made OS.

after reading the article and seeing it published else where, i know that at first glance this phone poses some pretty nice specs. also it is no intially set for verizon, in fact if u look at the antenia bands you might consider another carrier in its future.now verizon will get it but they are not set to get it first. do the research and check it out. i eagerly await this phone.
