Verizon brochure mentions the HTC ThunderBolt packing Android 2.3 Gingerbread - arrival imminent?

HTC officially confirmed it late last month, which is well within the means of a third quarter release. Showing yet more proof that the arrival is undoubtedly nearing, one of our tipsters managed to snap an image of an upcoming Verizon Wireless brochure for indirect dealers, which prominently mentions Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense as being part of the features with the HTC ThunderBolt.
At this point, we’re literally nearing the finish line with this one now that the ThunderBolt is being advertised as running Gingerbread. Naturally, the wait is by far the biggest obstacle right now for handset owners, but we’re confident that an announcement is not too far off in the distance!
Thanks, anonymous tipster!
- Display 4.3" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S2, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 8 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1400 mAh(6.30h talk time)
I can't beleive my Charge is being advertised with Media Hub and Social Hub. I rooted and flashed a debloated ROM to get rid of that garbage. FYI: There have been GB leaks for the Charge for quite a while now and the final version(EP1W) was released a week or two ago meaning the official GB for the Charge isn't going to be too far away.

Wow what the heck. I love android too, just being honest though. I said android was great, the thunderbolt sucks tho. I mean have you ever heard anything good about it? I can actually feel for the Miz a bit now. There's supporting what you like, then being blind to competition. P.S. I have a galaxy s phone and the Thunderbolt isn't a high end phone anymore.

Really? A Galaxy S phone is superior to the Thunderbolt?! I have had the Tbolt since launch and I honestly wouldn't buy any other android device that verizon has to offer over the tbolt (and I work here). I'd love to hear this explanation....
