Verizon branded HTC ThunderBolt strikes CES
The long awaited and rumored HTC ThunderBolt is finally here! The Verizon branded 4.3 inch phone hits CES making full use of Big Red's 4G LTE network and runs on the latest generation of the Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz.

No surprises on the hardware end - the back of the device features an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 720p HD video, but how about the software? Well, you have to have apps to actually use those blazing fast speeds. Here is where the HTC ThunderBolt shines with Skype mobile video calling to share those precious moments. Okay, it might not be as ground-breaking as dual-core processors, we know!

The screen on the handset is Super LCD, while sound is covered with Dolby and SRS surround technology. Android 2.2 Froyo runs the show and some nice treats include DLNA for wireless streaming along with mobile hotspot capabilites to share the connection with up to 8 Wi-Fi devices. The HTC ThunderBolt will come with 32GB of memory on board and is one of the two big announcements for Verizon smartphones, which will both be available by mid-year. It's an HTC phone, so you get all the sweetness of the updated HTC Sense 2.0 with Fast Boot and some new features.

The phone even got HTC's own Peter Chou "super excited", so stay tuned as we will have a hands on review of the phone later.
