HTC Thunderbolt specifications

HTC has finally announced the HTC Thunderbolt LTE Android handset on Verizon and just like I told you earlier this week the device packs an MSM8655 coupled with an MDM9600 LTE radio (and not an MSM8960 like the stupid rumor claimed…).

The device will most probably feature an MSM8x55 coupled with MDM9600 LTE multimode modem..well unless Verizon isn’t planning to ship it until next fall…
