Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt to get Android Ice Cream Sandwich soon
If you own an HTC Thunderbolt, I’m sure you already know that the handset was supposed to be updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich before the end of August. And you also know that the update hasn’t been released, so the smartphone is running Android Gingerbread as we speak.
According to HTC USA, the Thunderbolt will get ICS soon – although it’s not clear just how soon. Hopefully later this month, or in January the latets.
In case you’re wondering, the Thunderbolt will not be updated to Android Jelly Bean. At least not in an official manner.
Launched way back in March 2011, the HTC Thunderbolt is no longer available for purchase at Verizon. If you do want a new HTC-made smartphone from the largest US carrier, you can choose between the Droid DNA (with its 5 inch 1080p display), Droid Incredible 4G, HTC Rezound, HTC Rhyme, and the HTC 8X (which, of course, runs Windows Phone 8).
