HTC Thunderbolt “Blazingly” Fast !!
At the Verizon press conference, HTC’s Thuderbolt was officially launched. The Thunderbolt is HTC’s first LTE device and has been described as “blazing” fast. The Thunderbolt does not use Nvidia’s dual-core Tegra processor, instead it runs on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is a bit of a disappointment, but the smartphone is said to be perfectly responsive with no disruptive lags.
As far as the design of the smartphone goes, the Thunderbolt is very much an HTC product. It measures 4.8 inches tall X 2.6 inches wide X 0.5 inches thick and weighs 5.78 ounces, so it’s a bit hefty but that also gives the phone a very solid, premium feel. The back has a slight curve to it, making it comfortable to hold in the hand, and it has a nice, soft-touch finish.
The screen measures 4.3 inches diagonally and has a WVGA (800×480 pixels) resolution. Though it’s not any different from the current crop of devices from HTC, it’s still sharp and bright, and the built-in accelerometer and pinch-to-zoom gestures worked smoothly and quickly. The Thunderbolt will run Android 2.2 though the latest version of HTC Sense and will be upgradable to Android 2.3, Thunderbolt will have to wait. It offers 8GB of internal storage and 768MB RAM, an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, and a 1,400mAh lithium ion battery.
Despite few minor disappointments, HTC Thunderbolt makes a mark.
