HTC ThunderBolt to be the first Verizon handset to support voice and data at the same time
A leaked Verizon training material hints that the HTC ThunderBolt is set to be the first Big Red handset to support voice and data at the same time. Furthermore, it's sure to be advertised as a phone of many firsts for the largest US carrier - the first to offer Skype Mobile for video calling, the first to share a 3G or 4G connection using VZW Mobile Hotspot and the first to feature HTC's latest UI - Sense 2.0.

Understandably, the big news here is the simultaneous use of voice and data that is not something new for the other 3 major US carriers (Sprint's WiMAX supports it), but is surely going to be a revelation for Verizon customers.

Moreover, this training material means this phone's launch can't be that far away, but until then, check out our HTC ThunderBolt hands-on.
