HTC Rep Confirms that Gingerbread is Up Next for the Thunderbolt

HTC told us all the way back in March that we’d have Gingerbread (Android 2.3) on the Thunderbolt some time in Q2, but with that time frame about to come to a close, our readers are starting to get antsy.  And that means that they are reaching out to HTC to try and find out any little tidbit they can, one of which we’ve included below.  An HTC rep has confirmed that the next update for the Tbolt won’t just be to fix the reboot issues, but that it will also update the phone to Gingerbread.

Dear Adam  XXXXX,

I understand how important it is for your Thunderbolt to function properly and I apologize that you have been experiencing rebooting of the device. HTC and Verizon are aware of this issue and an update will be released soon that will address the reboot issue, and bring the Gingerbread 2.3 upgrade on board, as well as several other enhancements. Although I don’t have an official release date to provide you, this update will be released soon. Please monitor our website for further information as the release date moves closer.

Sincerely,

Jessica

Want to see what others are saying? Have a question to ask other HTC fans?

I know that isn’t a date, but Q2 ends in 5 days, so we’ll be on the look out for any happenings behind the scenes.  To get an idea of what you can expect from 2.3 on the Tbolt, you’ll want to check out this post.

Cheers Adam!

    I have no issues with my Tbolt just the battery dying quit but that because I watch movies on my way to the city. Love my Tbolt always on 4G. The next phone is the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, or the Galaxy Note love big screen phone and it has a big battery pushing about 2400 mh.

    As we figured, this is according to the VZ forums.  Verizon is still jerking us around so much for their Q2 release

    I have to express some thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from such a crisis. Just after looking out throughout the world wide web and meeting ideas which were not powerful, I believed my entire life was over. Living devoid of the answers to the issues you’ve solved by way of your good review is a crucial case, and the kind which could have in a negative way affected my career if I had not encountered your blog post. Your skills and kindness in touching everything was helpful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a point like this. It’s possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this professional and sensible help. I won’t think twice to propose the blog to anybody who ought to have counselling on this matter.
