[Rumor] HTC Thunderbolt specs? Or just a dream made of unicorn blood?
Stop what you're doing, take a second and click the picture you see above. If you're reading on your phone, run to a computer -- you want to see this. Supposedly these are the specs for the European version of the HTC Thunderbolt, and they are amazing. Almost too amazing. According to HTCInside.de (a German HTC blog and fansite), the Thunderbolt will be released with the Qualcomm MSM8960 dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, Gingerbread, an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, and support for 128GB SDXC cards.
Is it real? Heck, we don't know, and honestly, none of us thinks these specs are right. But we offer it as-is, for you guys to dissect in the Thunderbolt forums. Just don't go blaming us if your heart gets broken. [HTCInside.de (German) via Pocketnow]

Anyway, good to see this on Verizon.
The specs are awesome... but tbh the only thing the Evo lacked was the GPU power. A lot of these things are unnecessary, but always welcome. :)
If so I can't see the specs being to far off look at the tegra 2 its already out and its a dual core 1ghz cortex a9 and supposively its capable of being clocked up to 2ghz and up to 4 cores.
Hoping for the best!
4" or bigger screen
Dual core processor with awesome GPU
awesome rear camera with HD video
front facing camera
Huge battery, 1650mah or more. 1800 sounds good! Physical keyboard, but doesn't much matter
Google Experience, like sense the least, but will "suffer" for the right phone These specs have that, AND more. I wasn't upgrading until then, if this is legit I am ALL over it. Otherwise I'll continue to wait, which I think I will be doing for most of the upcoming year with the above list. I doubt that phone is releasing in Jan.. Maybe end of the year.
It is probably launching on all other LTE - T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2 and Orange networks around the globe.
Every CDMA phone with a wifi, Wimax, or Lte radio can do simultaneous voice and data. Since the Evo can on wifi and 4G, that means it can do it more places than GSM phones. Get educated. But, as I said, who does that anyway?
My GSM phone can do voice and data at the same time in almost every country on this planet, so I dont know if your evo can do that in more places!?
No one really owns the patents for GSM while Qualcomm owns the one for CDMA.
Maybe theres still a chance that Vodafone is somehow buying 1% plus 1 Stock to take over Verizon completely and we see a Vodafone.USA!
