The war of the smart phones has just been intensified with HTC bringing Thunderbolt to the market. It would be correct to say Thunderbolt was one of the most eagerly anticipated devices since the turn of the year and this beast of a device is here. The Thunderbolt is another in line most famously after EVO 4G and Atrix 4G to run on the 4G spectrum. It is one of the many phones which will be using the 4G LTE network of Verizon which is expected to be expanded to over 100 areas in the United States.
Even apart from its 4G capabilities, the Thunderbolt is a phone worth considering buying seeing its impressive hardware built and Android powered, 2.2 Froyo which is upgradable to 2.3 Gingerbread. The phone is sporting an impressive 8 mega pixel camera with Flash. The phone also sports a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera for video calling. The battery included is a 1400mAh battery which is slightly on the lower side considering the device is running 1GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor and sporting a 768 MB of RAM making this device very zippy. One of the most useful features of Thunderbolt is that a 32GB micro SD card is included with a massive 8GB internal memory. With a 4.3 inch QVGA screen, Thunderbolt is one of the most beautifully made Smart Phones.
HTC Thunderbolt is priced at $249.99.
