Verizon and HTC say Gingerbread update for HTC ThunderBolt coming soon

Verizon and HTC say Gingerbread update for HTC ThunderBolt coming soon
Back in late September, Verizon sent out an Android 2.3 update for owners of the HTC ThunderBolt. This took place after various rumors missed the mark on when Verizon's first LTE enabled phone would start running on Gingerbread. Whether or not there was a rush to get the software ready for the handset, some estimated that the update that started late last month was only 90% ready. As a result, HTC ThunderBolt users started experiencing problems after the new software was installed.

Some of the problems included erroneous email notifications and problems with the camera locking. Other issues were found with the clock app, Google Talk and HTC's Sense UI. But it looks like things are about to get better for HTC ThunderBolt users. A tweet sent out from HTC on Monday says that the Taiwan based manufacturer and Verizon both anticipate a release of the update soon. The message adds that ThunderBolt users will be notified when the update is ready to be downloaded. And hopefully, this will be the last time that owners of the model will have to install Android 2.3.
