So, how's that for exciting news, TBolt owners? Since HTC clearly missed the Q2 update window that was originally announced, they moved it to the next logical choice... Q3. That's probably the best decision, especially when you consider the fact that we're already well into Q3.

The official word, per an HTC representative:

We are excited to announce that the HTC Thunderbolt will receive the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update in Q3 2011. Stay tuned for details as we get closer to the update availability…

As you can see, no solid date has been confirmed as of yet -- but at least now you know that Gingerbread should be hitting your device sometime within the next two months.
