Skype with video leaks out for HTC ThunderBolt
The HTC ThunderBolt was to be the first with support for video chat via Skype, but the feature was cancelled in the last minute. Now, however, your trust for the HTC ThunderBolt has finally been rewarded as Skype with video calling has arrived in its full 4G glory.

Verizon's LTE network is the perfect tool for video conferencing with its whopping average of 6Mbps for downlink speeds and initial reports claim that video calls are as smooth as what you see on a Wi-Fi network. Combine this with the 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera on the ThunderBolt and you have a great solution for on-the-go video chat. The feature will even work on 3G networks, but choppy framerates in that case are inevitable.

For the time being, you can enjoy video calls only on the ThunderBolt, but we see no reason why it shouldn't be available for other handsets in the near future. With that said, we'll leave to you testing of the free video feature – download links are below.
