HTC Evo 4G and HTC Thunderbolt Android 2.3 Gingerbread Updates

HTC Evo 4G and HTC Thunderbolt Android 2.3 Gingerbread Updates

HTC Thunderbolt was launched on CES at the beginning of the year 2011. It was launched by HTC with operator Verizon to be the first smart phone that has adopted Verizon LTE system. HTC Thunderbolt was delayed on the market for 4 times, because of its Battery life issue.

HTC has announced its plans to roll out Android 2.3 Gingerbread Updates to few of their handsets. Though it is a great news for some, but this HTC Android update confirmation applies only to GSM versions of their desire phones which are available in Europe and Asia.

So what about the users in the U.S with phones that are equipped with Android 2.2 system, like HTC Evo 4G and the new HTC Thunderbolt?
Now HTC customer support, in response to such queries, has confirmed that Android 2.3 would be coming to the HTC Desire family, hence HTC Evo 4G and the HTC Thunderbolt will most likely receive an update to Android 2.3 by the end of June 2011.
It is also worth noting that HTC is fully aware of the problem that some HTC Thunderbolt owners are currently complaining, the rebooting bug, that is according to reports, randomly reboots an HTC Thunderbolt while using an application or watching videos in YouTube. HTC hopes to fix all the issues with the Gingerbread update according to HTC Customer Support Representative’s letter.

    There wasn't a fixed official date for HTC Thunderbolt Android 2.3 Gingerbread Updates by either HTC or Verizon. However, it was believd that by the end of June they means June 30th.
    Despite that fact that they are known for delays the update itself is very much due and definitely woulds be there soon. I'll update here as soon as I hear something.
    Take care and keep in touch in the meanwhile.
