Can’t say that I am shocked to see the HTC ThunderBolt available on Amazon for a mere penny but I will say this. If you’ve been looking to get on board the Verizon 4G LTE train and absolutely, positively don’t care about the Motorola Droid Bionic or any other 4G LTE phones that might launch in the next couple of months then this is probably a deal to look at.
The HTC ThunderBolt has had its issues but an update that Verizon released, a rather sinister one actually, took care of a lot of the major bugs including that random reboot issue that drove ThunderBolt owners nuts.
It’s also still waiting for its upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread which could either be a godsend or an absolute nightmare. I’d hope that because it has taken this long to get released, HTC and Verizon are working to ensure it will be the former. Who knows.
Anyway, if you’re interested, you can find the ThunderBolt available for a mere penny right here. Keep in mind, this is about the only price, other than free, where I can half-heartedly recommend it. It’s also going to require you to sign a new two year contract.
In other words, you’re better off waiting until September.
