    There has been many hands-on videos of the Thunderbolt, mostly from CES, but now we have a better view of how the Thunderbolt. The video above was taken by Wirefly in an attempt to give you a demo of the box and all the hardware features you might’ve missed. The video is around 7 minutes long, so enjoy the lengthy preview.

    I was under the impression that most HTC devices came with a set of headphones. Am I wrong in assuming this? Because there were no headphones in this video.

    Not that its a huge problem, I have headphones but I thought it was a nice addition to the phone itself.

    I wounder if all the problems are about the sim card? just looked at the video and no sim card ....Plus they may have switched the 32 gb card for the headphones...

    Sure is one nice looking phone...

    no sim card cause that was a display device that was not activated...im sure you will get a sim card when the phone is given to you...and you are right about the sd and the headphone trade...

    id much rather have a 32gb card than a set of ear buds. what bose headset are you using?

    Well that was the general consensus...last I knew.

    But I do believe that SIM slot is for the 4G LTE service.

    I really wish they would make a full length battery for the phones, and make the entire back the battery cover. That way if you got an extended batt it would just add a little thickness to the whole phone, and not have a ridiculous bump.

    +1, the iPhone 4 has a battery almost as long as the phone.

    Thank you all for the nice comments about Wirefly's unboxing video. When I was handed the box for the ThunderBolt, I was told that it was the actual shipping package. Therefore, I assume that there will be no earphones in the box with the ThunderBolt.

    The SIM card is another issue, however. AT&T and T-Mobile always pack a SIM card in the box. There are a couple other Verizon phones that have SIM cards (DROID 2 Global and DROID Pro), and these come with the SIM pre-mounted in the slot. I'm sure the ThunderBolt will be sold with a SIM, but don't know for sure if it will be pre-mounted or just shipped with the phone.

    I've had more time to use the ThunderBolt and it is a GREAT phone. Wirefly will shortly post a "Schmackdown!" video that compares the ThunderBolt to its older brother from a different carrier, the HTC EVO 4G. The EVO is another great phone, so this will be a lot of fun. Hope you guys all enjoy it, as well as Wirefly's other ThunderBolt videos.

    Thanks for the great video Bob. Is there anyway you could run the app "Neocore" on the Thunderbolt and post how many FPS it achieves? It is a free 3D benchmark. I had heard the TB would be lacking in the 3D department, and wanted to know how it compares to my DX. Thanks in advance.
