HTC Thunderbolt, the first smartphone with the 4G LTE, which is originally rumored to be released last February 14, 2011 by Verizon, can now be pre-ordered in Best Buy stores. According to recent reports, the HTC Thunderbolt’s scheduled release date is now moved back to February 24, 2011 to give way for Verizon’s launch of the iPhone on February 10.
HTC Thunderbolt is another android phone running on Froyo, Google‘s Android Operating System 2.2. Aside from having a 4.3-inch WVGA screen with HTC’s Sense running on a 1 Ghz processor, the smart phone features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, digital compass, GPS, and a proximity sensor. Other features include 8MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera which enables the phone for Skype video calling. The phone also comes with a 32 GB micro SD for additional storage.
A leaked photo of the HTC Thunderbolt released by Droid Life reveals that the smart phone will have a regular price of $749.99 at Best Buy. Furthermore, for those who want to avail it at a cheaper price, the smart phone can be bought for just $250 on a two-year contract with Verizon. Let’s wait for the official release of the HTC Thunderbolt next week.
