HTC ThunderBolt hands-on!

Published Jan 6th, 2011 7:41PM EST

Check it, check it — we just went all up close and personal with HTC’s Thunderbolt for Verizon Wireless, the device we first showed to the world, and have a deluge of photos and hands-on video for you to enjoy. The handset is, of course, LTE 4G compatible on Big Red’s network and features the latest HTC Sense UI with built-in Skype video calling, 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 4.3-inch display, Android 2.2 and MiFi hotspot mode. The screen looks beautiful, and we’re told it’s a Super LCD display. As far as feel goes, it feels good though a tad bit… hollow? Not the end of the world for such a lustworthy handset, right? Our gallery and video are all after the break!
