The HTC Thunderbolt goes on sale Thursday, March 17, at Verizon Wireless stores and other retailers for $249.99 with a new contract. Phone Scoop received a review unit today, and wanted to quickly give you a taste of what the Thunderbolt looks like.
It is a large slab phone that has a 4.3-inch touch display, dual cameras, and a kick-stand. It's big, slightly thick and bulky, but still manages to feel good in the hand thanks to steeply rounded sides.
Our first impressions of the hardware and software are favorable. The buttons and controls feel good, and the HTC Sense user interface was fluid and moved lightning quick.
Unfortunately, I don't live in an area with LTE 4G coverage, so we haven't been able to test the LTE data speeds yet. But don't worry, we surely will! Stay tuned for Phone Scoop's full report on the Thunderbolt in the coming days.
Until then, we humbly offer this video tour:
