If you're having difficulty controlling your desire to get Gingerbread on your HTC Thunderbolt right now, you're not alone. But, if you've been waiting for the official release, you've probably grown very impatient by this point. It appears the wait is nearing an end, as Verizon's support site now contains a page for the Thunderbolt's long-overdue bump to Android 2.3.4. Here are the changes they've listed:
Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update, Build Number: 2.11.605.3; Baseband: 1.48.00.0906w_1, 0.01.78.0906w_2, for your ThunderBolt by HTC.
T-Mobile has had quite a day today, first announcing their impending release of the Galaxy S II, then announcing the HTC Amaze 4G, formerly known around the rumor mill as the HTC Ruby.
It appears that one of the device's major claims to fame is its camera. The Amaze boasts a backside illuminated sensor, in addition to software enhancements including SmartShot and PerfectPics, allowing you to take the best shot every time, and organize your photos easily. Read More
Yeah, we know -- it has only been three days since we leaked Gingerbread build 2.11.605.2 RUU for the TBolt, but how could we say no when our homie Justin Case from TeamAndIRC asked us if we want to drop a newer leak?
We couldn't. So here you go -- Gingerbread Build 2.11.605.3 for the HTC ThunderBolt. The installation process is basically identical to the previous leak, so if you've already flashed that, then this should be a breeze. Read More
There's no doubt that we're all waiting with anticipation for the HTC Vigor, which is rumored to be coming out as the Droid Incredible HD, to hit the market. It's reportedly going to be the first full HD phone, sporting a 720p display, 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, Sense 3.5, and Android 2.3.4 -- in other words, it's going to be a beast.
For those who want to get a little taste of what the Vigor has to offer before this upcoming HTC monster is officially released, we have gotten our hands on all of the multimedia goodies from the device. Read More
Not into the girl-centric HTC Rhyme? How about 5GB of free cloud storage courtesy of Dropbox to sweeten the deal? No? Fine. Regardless of whether or not this makes the Rhyme more appealing to the testosterone-fueled among us, HTC has joined forces with Dropbox to up the amount of free cloud storage from 2GB to 5GB on all new and upcoming Sense 3.5 devices.
If you're hoping that your device will snag a Sense 3.5 update and some bonus cloud space to go with it, I wouldn't suggest holding your breath. Read More
It's a bittersweet feeling when one of the most revolutionary devices to hit the market ends up on a carrier's EOL (End of Life) list. While it's generally realized that the device itself is old hat, its retirement indicates that newer, better, and more powerful devices are upon us.
This is the case for one of Android's most celebrated success stories: the HTC EVO 4G. According an internal Sprint document obtained by SprintFeed, the white variant of the EVO 4G will meet its demise at the end of this week, while the black one will hang on for just a while longer -- at least until the first part of October.

When I switched from AT&T from Verizon and swapped my aging, battered, and bruised Nexus One for a DROID BIONIC, the possibility of buyer’s remorse was not on my mind. I was coming from AT&T - America’s single least reliable network in terms of dropped calls. So, I thought the last thing I’d end up doing was wishing I was back there. And now, at least part of me does.
If you own a Verizon 4G LTE handset, you’ve probably experienced an issue exactly or approximately like this one: You put your phone in your pocket or let it sit overnight, take it out some time later or the next morning, and there’s no data connection. Read More
At the beginning of the month, HTC announced that it would be bringing Gingerbread to the Droid Incredible and ThunderBolt. While that promised has been fulfilled for the former, there's been nary a word of the status of the update for the latter. Until now.
Thanks to our anonymous tipster known only as Pig Benis, we have an official Gingerbread RUU hot of the presses for the HTC ThunderBolt.
Our tipster isn't positive if this is the final build or not, but considering it's so close to the end of the month, it is very likely.
Last night, I sent out a message from our social accounts praising the Epic 4G Touch's boot times. They amazed me as soon as I turned this Galaxy S II Sprint variant for the first time last Friday and haven't ceased to amaze me ever since. I have loaded up all the same apps and then some compared to any of my other phones, and still - the Epic 4G Touch blazes by the competition like no other device I've seen. Read More
Despite the fact that we've already seen the phone previously known as the HTC Holiday running on AT&T's LTE network, the first carrier to get this monster device will in fact be South Korea's SK Telecom. The phone will be released under the moniker Raider 4G, and packs some pretty serious hardware under the hood:
- 4.5-inch qHD display
- 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon
- 1GB RAM
- 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
- 16GB internal storage
- Android 2.3.4 with Sense 3.0
There's no word when this phone will be available outside of South Korea, but considering AT&T just started lighting up its LTE network and doesn't yet have a smartphone available that supports it, we expect a US announcement fairly soon. Read More
