    One day before the official launch of the HTC Thunderbolt we get teased with yet one more photo of the first 4G Verizon Android phone courtesy of Rolling Stone Magazine. Also pictures is the unheard of HTC Inspired 4G for AT&T? This could be AT&T's first Android 4g Phone! Now when are the hardware specs going to leak!?

    *** UPDATE ***

    AndroidSpin was able to get their hands on a Thunderbolt and believe these to be the specs:
    • ARM v7 processor, Single Core, 1 Ghz
    • 8 GB internal memory, (32gb sd card included)
    • 4.3 inch screen
    • NO HDMI port
    • 8 MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front (We believe)
    • Runs the new HTC Sense UI on top of Android 2.1.2
    • HTC Maps and Navigation is included
    • DLNA support via an HTC preinstalled app

    2.1? Is that some sort of joke?

    32gb microsd is nice though.

    Granted, the specs are guesses at this point. But, given VZW's supposed change in upgrade policy, why would someone feel comfortable keeping this device for 20 months? Other than LTE, the Thunderbolt doesn't give me any sparks.

    The lower MP on the front facing cam = the better I look in video chats :)

    Ummm.. No wait I got it! They just made a mistake in the previous adds... "Its not your dream phone, its the one before, the one before that..."

    Ahh, now that sounds more like it!

    Do we really want that huge camera that's on the back on the front? I see the 1.3 as way less intrusive. Although im not a fan of this phone....just not a big htc fan.

    Same sentiments here as far as HTC. I will wait for a Motorola to come out with dual core and front and rear cams. I recently upgraded to a droid X anyway and i love the scratch proof glass.

    Thank you for dissapointing me once again. Looks like I will stay with at&t until this summer when my contract ends at the very least. No dual-core/4.3" screen = no buy!! You can keep this one sirs. LG and Moto, you both still have a chance to pique my interest...:icon_evil:
