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).
