HTC Thunderbolt Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread Update Coming Soon; Will Bring Video Chatting Via Skype And Google Talk
By on June 18th, 2011

When Verizon and HTC announced the Thunderbolt at the CES 2011, the phone was supposed to ship with a video chat capable version of Skype. However, from the time of its announcement to its release date, something happened and the Thunderbolt did not ship with a video chat capable version of Skype.

Now, the folks over at Android And Me have got their hands on some internal documents from Verizon, which suggests that the HTC Thunderbolt will be getting a software update on June 30th.

The software update will bump the Android version on the handset to 2.3.4, and will include a bunch of bug-fixes including a fix for the random reboot issue. The software update carrying the build number 2.07.605.2 will also bring the video-chat capable version of Google Talk, and a new version of Skype, which will also support video-chatting.

The update will also bump the Sense version to 2.1, which will include integration with HTCSense.com. The update also aims at improving the aGPS performance of the handset, and will install Amazon AppStore along with Verizon’s Phone Finder and MyVerizon app.

Hopefully, there will be no technical problems and the Android 2.3.4 update for the Thunderbolt will not be delayed.

    Well this proved to be fake. How is that no one noticed the typo in the sheet that shows that there is an update from Verizon? It says Enhanced Microsoft Exchange Extention …… And what is an “Extention”? I am pretty sure that people at Verizon knows how to spell extension.
