HTC ThunderBolt 4G

Verizon HTC Thunderbolt 4G

We’ve seen various carrier opting for HTC’s Android smartphones making CES a blockbuster for 4G devices. We have come earlier with Sprint’s HTC EVO Shift 4G, AT&T’s HTC Inspire 4G and finally Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt 4G. Don’t be surprised if the Thunderbolt will go head-to-head with Verizon’s iPhone. The new Big Red’s Android device feature a 4.3 inch screen, front and rear cameras, integrated DLNA support, Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon™ processor and the latest version of HTC Sense.

Now what make “sense” for this HTC multimedia handset is the Skype connectivity that virtually enables each user to connect to other 100-million active Skype users utilizing Verizon’s network across multiple devices. I don’t really know if you’ll not be blinded on shifting to this or the iPhone 4? Don’t you?
