Leaked notice shows June 30th OTA update for HTC ThunderBolt bringing Gingerbread and more
A source called a "Verizon Insider" by Android and Me has provided two screenshots of a release notice for the HTC ThunderBolt. According to the notice, the LTE enabled handset is expected to receive an OTA update on June 30th that...get ready...will load up the phone with Android 2.3.4, which means gTalk support. Also included with the update is Skype video capabilities and a pre-installed Amazon AppStore.

This sounds like a dream come true for HTC ThunderBolt owners who have been watching and waiting as other handsets have been receiving Gingerbread. With the latest and greatest Android OS release soon to be under the hood, if the screenshot is for real, this could change the mind-set of the typical T-Bolt owner who had been wondering if they made the right decision to jump onboard Verizon's first 4G enabled handset.

Start the countdown. While the source did say that there could be some changes to the download, the June 30th date is allegedly firm. Of course, regardless of which Android phone you own, you have heard that song before. Hopefully, there will be no glitches.
