Identification and Background ¶
The HTC Thunderbolt was the first smartphone to run on Verizon Wireless's 4G LTE network. Running on the Android operating system, this device sports a 4.3 inch WVGA display on the front, in addition to a front facing camera and earpiece. On the rear of the device is an 8 megapixel camera with a dual LED flash.
The Thunderbolt can be recognized by its gray outer casing, large screen and Verizon logo on the upper portion of the device below the earpiece. The Thunderbolt can be easily identified by the silver integrated kickstand that says "Verizon", located on the back of the device.
