Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt coming on June 30?

Back in April, we told you that the HTC Thunderbolt 4G would get Android 2.3 Gingerbread before the end of June, and it looks like this is indeed going to happen.

According to Android and Me and a Verizon insider, there’s a software update scheduled for June 30, which will bring not only Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, but also Sense UI 2.1, Skype and gTalk video functionality, pre-installed Amazon Appstore, enhanced aGPS functionality, and enhanced Microsoft Exchange extensions.

The update should also fix the issues appeared after the previous software update was rolled-out.

The HTC Thunderbolt currently costs $249.99 at Verizon (new 2-yr contract required) and, alongside the Samsung Droid Charge and the LG Revolution, is presented as being “twice as fast as any AT&T smartphone.” Well, I’m really looking forward to seeing how Verizon will market its 4G handsets after AT&T launches its own LTE network (which should happen sometime later this year).
