From what we've seen around the AP offices, the Thunderbolt is the most highly-anticipated Android phone in some time. It's no surprise, either: between HTC's respectable name, tested-and-true hardware, and LTE, all accounts describe it as a fantastic piece of kit. HTC has released a short promo video featuring some of the key employees behind development of the device, and it's actually a surprisingly well-shot, well-cut, interesting view - definitely worth the few minutes it takes to watch it.

Our man Jaro has just received our Thunderbolt review unit, so expect our full (and likely exhaustive) review in the coming days.

    Which one of them designed the charging port so you can't have it on the kickstand while charging?

    And I can forgive crappy battery life, cause I know the community will work something up that will help, but its no excuse for releasing a device with a 4 hour LTE battery life.

    I don't usually knock HTC, I love their hardware (And even as a CM user since like last July, Sense is not really TOO bad, its probably the better of them all). I have a Dinc and I have messed around with my friend's EVO and MT4G. All are solid phone, but I have to say that they kinda struck out on this one.

      What other gripes do you have with the phone? Because you list only 2, one of which you say you're not worried about, but then say they "struck out" with the T-bolt?

      As for battery life, that's pretty normal for 4G in my experience. I can use up a full charge in about 3-4 hours using WiMAX on my EVO... and your LTE is much better than my WiMAX in terms of speed.

    Might as well been an advert for the HTC Desire HD.
    Apart from the tiny mention of 4G, same as the Desire HD.
