Today Verizon launched their first LTE smartphone putting to rest how quickly they’d be releasing handsets on the new network. The HTC Thunderbolt went on sale online and is currently on display in stores. I made a drop by and took a few pictures of the display.
The device specs: 4.3-inch screen, priced at $250 on a two-year contract, Android 2.2 as the OS underlying the HTC Sense 2.0 UI, 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording, 768MB of RAM, and a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 chip
Verizon Store on 34th/7th NYC
Positioned right next to the Samsung Galaxy Tab – Interestingly, a sales person suggested to a customer that with the screen size on the Thunderbolt they wouldn’t even need a tablet…great job of up selling Verizon!
