HTC Thunderbolt 4G Smartphone Shown At CES 2011

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.
