HTC Thunderbolt ready for Verizon employee training?
Earlier this month, during CES 2011, when Verizon announced the HTC Thunderbolt (alongside the LG Revolution and Samsung 4G LTE), it didn’t say when we should expect to see the smartphone in stores. Well, actually it did say “soon”, but that doesn’t mean much.
While we’re waiting for more official details to be unveiled, AndroidCentral is reporting that Verizon employees may have already started training for the Thunderbolt’s upcoming launch. This means the handset could become available next month – although, of course, this is just a wild guess.
The HTC Thunderbolt is one of Verizon’s first 4G / LTE smartphones and features Android 2.2, a 4.3 inch WVGA touchscreen display, DLNA, Dolby Surround sound, front-facing camera for video calling, 8MP photo camera on the back (with HD video recording), and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. No word yet on the smartphone’s price, but I bet it won’t be over $200 on contract.
