HTC ThunderBolt Here “Sooner Than Expected”

The HTC ThunderBolt will hit stores earlier than Verizon initially anticipated. The original launch date was set as February 24, but now Big Red has tweeted that, while many "waited for the Verizon iPhone", the HTC ThunderBolt will be here sooner than expected. This could mean an early February launch, possibly during or before MWC 2011.

HTC Thunderbolt Will Function as Mobile Hotspot

The HTC Thunderbolt is shaping up to be one hell of a powerhouse. The next-gen 1 GHz Snapdragon processor is blazing fast. I spent a lot of time with this phone at CES, and found it just as zippy as any dual-core option at the show. It feels like magic and cold molasses in your hand- HTC's best design by far. Today we've received further confirmation that the LTE smartphone will offer simultaneous voice and data- and we've learned that the ThunderBolt will launch with mobile hotspot functionality.

LTE HTC Thunderbolt supposedly detailed: 1.2GHz dual-core & twin 8MP/5MP cameras? [Updated]

The LTE-packing HTC Thunderbolt smartphone will supposedly be seeing a European release as well as availability on Verizon in the US, if a leak supposedly from a German retailer's systems is authentic. According to HTCInside, the Thunderbolt has a 1.2GHz dual-core MSM8960 processor and both 8-megapixel (rear) and 5-megapixel (front) cameras, and is headed to German carriers O2, Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone in 2011.

Update: Something to be cautious about: the MSM8960 supposedly found inside the Thunderbolt isn't expected to arrive until 2012. Either the chip has been mis-labeled, or it's a sign that this isn't entirely legit.

HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon Shown Off in Pictures

While they may not be live photos, or even images of the device turned on in someone's hand, what we have here is a total of 12 images of the unannounced 4G LTE-enabled handset from HTC. While the official name of the device is still up in the air, it's currently going by Thunderbolt, so we'll stick with that.
