HTC Thunderbolt is lightning fast, literally
HTC never stops innovating. They already introduced the 1st 4G phone, and now, the first 4G LTE phone. I honestly don’t know what’s the difference between 4G and 4G LTE, but I’m sure that LTE is faster than the former because it’s new and is known to be the fastest 4G network in the US. Anyway, if you know the difference, please feel free to share it in the comments below.
As we all know, this phone is also unveiled at CES 2011. Almost all newly showcased gadgets during the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show made everyone excited to get their hands on it. Gadget freaks are now curious when is the release date and what are the prices of these eye-popping Android devices.
HTC brags that the Thunderbolt is first phone with integrated video Skype mobile. You can video Skype to any device, from anywhere in the world and WiFi is not required to use such service. This is a significant great feature for an Android device and will truly maximize and test the speed of 4G LTE.
HTC Thunderbolt boasts an 8MP camera with autofocus, LED Flash (2x LED), and 1.3MP front facing camera. It’s not really a great feature for a phone because it’s pretty common. Most smartphone users including me are also not considering this as a factor for a phone to become awesome. Even if your phone has 10MP, 12MP, or 20MP, nobody really cares at all. You’ll just tend compress your photos to upload it faster. So a phone with a 5MP camera or less is a good thing for a smartphone.
This android phone is powered by a lightning fast 1.0 GHz Qualcomm processor, flaunts dual microphones with noise cancellation, recording, sharing and viewing of HD videos, surround sound, compass sensor, GPS,/AGPS, Bluetooth 2.1, G-Sensor, proximity sensor, light sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, MicroUSB, FM radio, LTE SIM slot , and TI audio DSP.
