The update apparently will be rolling out OTA but it looks like Big Red will offer the ability to manually install the update as well. Here is what the update is going to be bringing to HTC ThunderBolt owners:

  • Enhance data connectivity when accessing the Verizon 3G network
  • SMS and MMS messages are stored properly in the Messaging Application (Inbox, Sent, etc.)
  • Timing for device activation has been improved
  • “Backup Assistant” is correctly displayed in the Application menu.
  • Stability improvements for data centric applications such as Facebook, KAYAK, Yahoo! Mail, My Verizon and more.
  • Accurate location is displayed when accessing the Weather Widget.
  • Quickly load GPS updates for Google Maps and VZ Navigator.

While it’s no Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is said to be coming sometime either in May or June, it certainly brings some good stuff to the table.
