Thunderbolt Might Blow Your Pants Off [GOS]

For those of you who don't know, the Thunderbolt is the new HTC phone for Verizon Wireless, their first LTE 4G phone. It's not supposed to be released until the Consumer Electronics Show next month, but this article has a link to a German website with supposed specs on the phone. If these specs are for real, this is my next phone, keyboard or not (I love my Droid2 keyboard!). However, the GOS acronym stands for grain of salt. Now we'll wait until CES to find out what the REAL specs are.

Nothing left to do but wait.

This is from the so-crazy-it-just-might-be-awesome department. I received an email from a tipster who told me to “eat this” and prompted me to a German website playing host to what is allegedly the specifications to the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt.

The specs are beyond whack crazy, but even if some of them are true then forget the Optimus 2X. All specs listed in the picture are subject to change if mein Deutsch sucks.

  • 4.3″ screen
  • Dual-Core 1.2GHz processor
  • Gingerbeard
  • 8MP Camera w/2 LED flash
  • 5MP front camera
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 1800 mAh battery

Is it January sixth yet?

Yeah, I don’t believe a damn word of this. But weirder things have happened.

From here on out, GOS means Grain of Salt.

Yeah, I've been delaying my upgrade since Nov. waiting on something significantly better than my Droid. The only thing I see missing is Tegra graphics.
