HTC Thunderbolt 4G Caught Posing in Ads

We first reported the nameThunderbolt” as a possibility for the new HTC 4G LTE device that many have been dubbing the Incredible HD and after seeing a link from some new HTC ads, we’re pretty sure that’s the name you’ll get when this puppy is unveiled next week.  The ad above was taking users to http://www.htc.com/4G?extcid=Thunderbolt-4G-Disp which clearly states the word “Thunderbolt” and more than likely will end up being “Thunderbolt 4G” a la the EVO 4G.  The name seems a little gimmicky, but who am I to judge smartphone names?

    Break out your wallets, 4G prices are ridiculous!!! I won't be getting anything 4G until thier prices come down to a more reasonable level…

      What happens if you have this phone (I liked Droid Incredible HD better) and no 4G in your area?

    no more unusual than storm I guess, this whole society has sissified the american male, actually I hope its called thunderbolt, reminds me when they changed super sonic to evo, oh well, looks like great phone, I wish theyd make them real high tech looking, first droid was kinda wild for time, just me

  • James…

    The DROID BOLT 4G!!!!!!!!
    I can dig it

  • AAA

    it will be 4g, that's it. no dual core and so therefore not my dream phone after my current dream phone. next!

  • dr154

    if it is called thunderbolt, most likely its a codename like the rest of em.

  • g00ber

    Can we just name a phone DASHITz and be done with it.

  • Herach

    Why don't they just leave it as HTC 4G LTE. Thats a good name isn't it?

  • Jeremy Gentry

    I have to admit, some of the names for droid products have been pretty cheesy, but this one takes the cake

    • Cheesy? The incredible is the only droid brand phone that even has a real name, and thats a pretty good name in my opinion.

      • Jeremy Gentry

        Samsung Galaxy S, Droid Eris…these aren't names? ok

        • Galaxy S is actually called the fascinate but no its not a “droid” brand phone. Just and android phone. Yes i forgot the droid eris but thats not cheesy either? Just sort of odd


    DDROID DD DROID….LOL, IM SO getting this device….hmm out of motoblur crap 4g device=no….samsung touchwiz 4g device….no….htc sense thunderbolt 4g, with sense and everything…hell yes… lol

    Umm yah but this better be droid branded …!!!

  • Rocktoonz

    Does this mean that the new Incredible will no longer be a “Droid” device?

  • Lacrosseking72

    best be amazing because i have been puttin off my upgrade for 6 months for this phone…

  • Goes along with all of the lightning in the ads for the 4G LTE devices currently being peddled by VZW.

    • DBEvans

      I was about to post the same thing. With the lightning speed theme in the LTE ads, the name “Thunderbolt” seems well positioned to leverage that existing ad campaign for its own advancement.

        Here I thought the average person would have put that together in their heads without issue, but I guess we needed a crack team of marketing officianado's to break this one wide open.

        Thanks guys!
