    Verizon's HTC Thunderbolt Getting the Ice Cream Sandwich Update Today


    Verizon trumpets they are finally pushing out the Ice Cream Sandwich update to the HTC Thunderbolt today! Yay! Wait... what? Oh yeah... that update. We told you it was coming last week, and probably should have been here about a year ago or so... Welp, it's here now. Here's their thrilling press release below,

    ThunderBolt by HTC is the next smartphone to be upgraded to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. The software upgrade will start getting pushed in phases beginning today Feb. 5.

    The upgrade features Face Unlock, where users can easily unlock their phone with face recognition, no typing required. A new Usage Center lends the ability to monitor data usage in one place; users can set warning levels, check app usage or turn off data completely. The upgrade also features a customizable launch bar, which allows for apps, shortcuts and folders to be easily dragged in and out of the bar for access from the home screen.

    Additional information on the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade can be found on the ThunderBolt by HTC support page.

    I'm still baffled this ever got released. I mean, the Thunderbolt is in its upgrade time frame for most people and many have probably ditched it already.

    Who really still has the TB? I liked mine, never had an issue with the original one I got day #1 of the TB release, and sold it when my next upgrade to the S3 happened in September. Sort of a little late now to be excited about a ICS update on a phone that hasn't been sold by VZW in quite some time.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Well, you can't blame VZW/HTC for trying ... way too little wayyyyy too late though. If they wanted to wait this long, they could've at least built it up to 4.2. Loved it when I had it, but glad I got rid of it when I did. Hopefully the new Rom will help with its battery life.

    Yeah, for those that received it, is it an improvement? Does it run well?

    This might make me hold out for a new release this spring. Was going to get my wife a GSIII, but if there's a GSIV or something else great around the corner we might try and wait.
