HTC Thunderbolt Appears in Rolling Stone Ad

Well, there it is again.  The HTC Thunderbolt has been spotted in so many places now, it’s becoming silly.  Above is an ad grabbed from the newest Rolling Stone magazine and it features our new 4G LTE friend using the same promo screen that we leaked a week or so ago in our 12-pic spread.  The device is almost guaranteed to be announced tomorrow at Verizon’s CES event, so keep it here as we’ll likely get our hands on it.

    i like to give this phone a ride

  • Rocktoonz

    I’m disappointed that it isn’t going to be a Droid device, seeing as it’s the successor to the Dinc.

      It still might be. A lot of places still call the Droid Incredible the HTC Incredible.

    But is it unlocked?

    Here’s my big question. If Honeycomb truly requires dual-core, then why get any of these phones if you can only go as far as Gingerbread? If they’re just blowing smoke up our @$$ about that, then I would love to get this phone!

    Reguarding the Droid branding, are there any other HTC phones on Verizon that arent Droids? Just wondering, because i cant think of any off hand. I remember with the Dinc they threw the Droid name on there right at the last second.

      Yeah I have a feeling they might do the same with this device.

    No reason this doesn’t get announced tomorrow. It’s been leaked for awhile now, strategically or otherwise, and I really want to learn more about it. From what I’ve heard, it’s not as good as some early leaked stats indicate….no dual core, 1.3 mp front facing camera, only 1ghz processor, and only Froyo. I think it may just be a Verizon EVO, but I’m hoping for a big surprise.

      This is Verizons premier 4g phone. Why wouldn’t they make it the most badass phone? It just doesn’t make sense to make this a sup-par phone. They are trying to keep and lure people to their network…

        HTC isn’t stupid. i don’t think it is logical to NOT put a dual core in that phone. then it will only update once to gingerbread, then no honeycomb? hmmmm

      This is a phone that should have been announced months ago

    No DROID branding? Means maybe still Bing’d out and craptacular?

        All android phones say Google on them

        • jason w.s.

          So then theres no Android phones out there that are “Bing’d out”? There couldnt be if they ALL say Google on them.

        • Anonymous

          No, not all of them. The Droid line have them because it is a collab between VZW, Moto, and Google. I’m pretty sure this will be Droid branded soon though.

            and htc…. (droid incredible by htc)

  • Anonymous

    This phone is like 5 or 6 months late. I mean come on, compared to the X it’d be a great alternative, but now? At CES? When (hopefully) we’ll find out about all the dual core phones coming out?

    • jason w.s.

      Yeah, like others have said, this is pretty much looking like its just Big Red’s Version of the Evo. I dont know if thats really that bad though…ive always kinda liked the Evo. Im thinkin im gonna be gettin this phone when it comes out.

    Re: the att 4g model. Not surprising. First ATT said they wouldn’t build a 4G network because their 3g was good enough with room to grow. Now they are saying they’ll go LTE. It’s pretty obvious they are just going to piggyback off the VZ LTE network.

    I’m thinking this is fake, considering it has an HTC Inspire 4G for AT&T?

    • storm34x

      this is most defenitely not fake. I work for big red now and we are in the know. that is all I can say!

      • jason w.s.

        I think it depends on what position you hold over at Big Red in reguards to how “in the know” you really are,lol. I know quite a few VZW sales reps that dont know squat about half the stuff thats comming out, or already out for that matter. Nothing against you personally and im not tryin to be a jerk…just sayin :P

    Inspire? How come we’ve never heard of it?

    • Bullet Tooth Tony

      Because it’s very likely the Desire HD that just went thru the FCC with the North American bands… of course with 3G bands, since HSPA+ is evidently the new 4G.

  • Hamman

    4G AT&T??? Oh yeah that’s right, anything can be 4G now….

  • TheZuneLune

    I hope the Lightning scene is the actual boot screen. :)

      with a droid eye incorporated would be insane!

    I purchased my X from Costco a couple weeks ago and have 90 days to return it. (much prefer 90 days to Verizons 30)

    I am hoping Samsung or HTC comes out with a really nice phone in that timeframe that I would like. Honestly I am most interested in simply being able to flash roms of my choice on a phone that is not locked down. I miss my D1… and love my new X, but I am ready to say goodbye to Motorola FOREVER!

    I could care less about Moto’s build quality… would anyone ever buy a house where all the doors are locked so you cant get in?

    • Bfairndia

      Double Check with them, bc i think you only get 30 days to do the return and still keep your upgrade pricing. At least that was what was told to me. 90 Days to return for money back, but if you rebuy, your One Every Two or something promo will expire.
