The HTC Thunderbolt isn’t exactly the most snazzy smartphone out there in the market simply because its battery life is not something most of us would like to live with (translated to extremely short in relation to other makes and models), despite the fact that it boasts of 4G connectivity to help you zip along quickly on the Internet when you are mobile. Well, perhaps the latest operating system update might just make it more power efficient, but we will just have to wait for an official version to roll out as a leak of the official Android 2.3 build for the HTC Thunderbolt is now available.
Install it at your own peril, as it might just end up bricking your device and voiding whatever warranty that you have left with the handset. This test build is also a hint that HTC is working really hard to roll out the official OS for this smartphone in time for the June 30th dateline. Well, will this bit of news help nudge you over the edge of “unsure” to “I’m gonna buy the phone, pronto!”?
