HTC Thunderbolt features
Powered by the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and running on the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, HTC Thunderbolt is the first smartphone featuring built-in video Skype mobile. Skype mobile with video calling significantly eases video conferencing.

Video calling with the integrated Skype mobile is as easy as making a normal voice call. Features such as presence icons, built into the user’s contacts list, will tell the user whether a friend is available for video calling.

The Android-based device features a large 4.3-inch high-resolution WVGA capacitive touch screen display. Users would appreciate the intuitiveness of the HTC Sense 2.0 user interface. For shutterbugs, the smartphone offers an 8-megapixel rear camera equipped with dual LED flash, auto focus, face detection and geo tagging features.

You can shoot 720p high-definition video with Thunderbolt’s impressive camera. Videos footages recorded with the Android phone’s camera could be instantly uploaded on YouTube. The front facing 1.3-megapixel secondary camera will aid video calling.

The 4G-enabled device could be used in Mobile Hotspots, where you can share the high-speed 4G connection with eight Wi-Fi devices. The 4G LTE capable smartphone will offer 5 to 12 Megabits per second download speed and 2 to 5 Megabits per second upload speed in areas covered by Verizon’s 4G Mobile Broadband network. The smartphone will be shipped with 32GB microSD memory card.
