Here’s a preview video of the HTC Thunderbolt — the first phone on Verizon’s blazing LTE network. The Thunderbolt features Google Android 2.2 with HTC Sense, a 4.3-inch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and…a kickstand! It’s a lot like the HTC Evo 4G for Sprint, but with updated parts (the processor and screen are better).
My initial Speedtest.net results were crazy good. I was getting download speeds over 11Mbps and upload speeds over 37Mbps. From what I understand, Speedtest.net is probably doing something funky with the upload test, so I’m not really buying those results. Still, the speeds are fantastic in terms of real-world usage — better than what I’ve been getting on Sprint’s WiMax network and T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.
Check out the video when you have a moment and let me know if you have any questions about this hot new phone for Verizon. Expect a full review next week.
