HTC ThunderBolt Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update in Q2 of 2011

March 28, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We know many among you have started flaunting your new HTC ThunderBolt, which was launched just a week ago. Even as the excitement is riding high, we have for you something that will give you more reasons to get excited. A possible OS update is waiting to hit your ThunderBolt, and per available tips, ThunderBolt will get a Gingerbread update in the second quarter of the year.

The story goes thus: A ThunderBolt owner had some issues with the Bluetooth functionality. In his bid to fix the issue, he contacted HTC officials, and got a reply from a  HTC official via e-mail that listed down details of the imminent update for the device.

According to the mail, the ThunderBolt will be getting an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update in Q2 this year. Though, we can’t say it is official information as HTC is yet to make an official announcement about the Gingerbread update for ThunderBolt.

However, we feel that the update is the best gift for the ThunderBolt owners who were patient enough to wait for its launch despite an annoying delay. ThunderBolt was actually set to hit the markets in early February and finally made it to the carriers just a week ago.

Though the exact reason for the delay in launch is unknown as yet, we feel the OS update team got some extra time to roll out the update so soon. We are pretty sure now that it is now time for all HTC Thunderbolt users to welcome the Gingerbread update with a smiling face.
