CES: HTC Thunderbolt is official, Verizon’s 4G response to the EVO

Today was Verizon’s turn to introduce all of the goodies coming out on its own network. One of those goodies was the new HTC Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt resembles the HTC EVO 4G in a lot of ways. The Thunderbolt is using Verizon’s brand new LTE network and is sporting one of those magic front facing cameras. With the new Skype video chat being bundled in, this device will be hard to pass up. Check out the full spec list after the break.

Android 2.2.1 (Froyo) with the most recent version of Sense UI

1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon with Adreno 205 GPU

512MB of RAM

Uknown amount of onboard storage, but supports MicroSD up to 32GB

4.3″ Super LCD screen with 480×800 resolution

8 Megapixel rear facing camera that can record 720P video

Dual LED flash

1.3Megapixel front facing camera for Skype video chatting

Supports both Verizons 3G and 4G LTE networks

Kickstand for watching videos with a large speaker placed behind it

WiFi 802.11 b/g/n

And that is that. It is a repackaged Desire HD with a front facing camera. Awesome phone indeed. I suppose the question is now, will it be able to keep up with the new dual core phones that are coming out soon?


Update – Just a side note, unlike the EVO 4G the HTC Thunderbolt does NOT have an HDMI out. Yes that is awful, we are hoping closer to launch we find out there is some micro USB HDMI out adapter. We aren’t holding our breath.
