HTC Thunderbolt gets quickie update just before launch

The HTC Thunderbolt will be launching tomorrow, and I know plenty of you are excited. The Android device that we first saw at CES 2011 will be Verizon’s first 4G LTE smartphone. So far, reports across the web are looking promising with some testers seeing download speeds in the 6-16Mbps ranges! But just before the device is released, it looks like it will be getting one more software update – and that update has been leaked for your enjoyment.

If you plan on hacking and tweaking the HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon, do so at your own risk. We’ve all seen the sad stories of bricked phones or non-working features when some devices are hacked, updated with unofficial software releases or rooted. For the most part, everyone seems to have luck with it, so feel free to nab the software update here before the device is launched tomorrow.

For those of you unaware, the HTC Thunderbolt is an Android 2.2 Froyo device sporting a 1GHz Qualcomm processor (sorry, no dual-core action here) and we were pretty impressed with our hands on at CES. Take a look at our video here.
