This was phone was presented at CES 2011 (Consumer Electronic Show) in January 2011, but at the time, was not yet out on the market.

This is what I wrote:

The HTC Thunderbolt has a blazing fast and bright display, plus the capability to wirelessly beam a video from the phone to a television set (that’s capable of receiving such transmissions.) It has a vast set of features that makes it head-to-head competitive with the iPhone and G2 Phone.

Here are the specs:

Networks: LTE 700, CDMA EvDO revA

Operating system: Android 2.2 + HTC Sense

Display: 4.3″ WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen

Camera: 8MP with autofocus, LED Flash (2x LED), 1.3MP front facing camera

Memory: 8GB emmc + 768 RAM Memory card, preinstalled 32 GB microSD

WLAN: 802.11 b/g/n

Bluetooth: 2.1 with EDR (3.0 when available)


Battery: 1400 mAh

Special features: Dual mics with noise cancellation, Surround sound, Compass sensor, G-Sensor,
Proximity sensor, Light sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, MicroUSB, FM radio, LTE SIM slot , TI audio DSP

Chipset: Qualcomm® MSM8655, 1GHz, Qualcomm MDM9600

As for release date? It’s not official, but I would not expect to see it until April of this year.

Now that video has been seen over 69,000 times, and the HTC Thunderbolt is a hot seller, giving the Apple iPhone a run for the money.

Stay tuned.
