When Droid Life reader John noticed that the Bluetooth functionality on his HTC ThunderBolt didn’t work too well, he did the most logical thing that came to mind and contacted HTC customer support. Little did he know, that the email that he was about to receive in reply will do more than just guiding him through the Bluetooth issue. After outlining the probable causes for the customer’s problem, the HTC support representative was kind enough to mention the company’s intentions to release a software update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the HTC ThunderBolt within the second quarter of this year. That ought to make Verizon’s hottest smartphone right now even a tad hotter.
When the HTC ThunderBolt launched some 11 days ago, it arrived with Android 2.2 Froyo, which wasn’t bad, of course, but still had some room for improvement. An update to Gingerbread was pretty much expected at some point in the future, it was only a matter of time before we stumble upon a tip on the matter. Moreover, it is always great to hear the news from a trustworthy source that an HTC representative is.
