HTC ThunderBolt Gingerbread Update Still Slated for Roll Out in September

The launch of the Motorola Droid Bionic has been out for several weeks. The releases of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Droid Prime are on the horizon, the latter of which could be a 4G LTE device. We have the HTC Vigor, a 4G LTE itself, in the mix And still, a 4G LTE device, one that was supposedly Verizon’s flagship, is still without its Android Gingerbread update. That device, is of course, the HTC ThunderBolt.

HTC promised HTC ThunderBolt owners, who have endured a seven month wait for the update, that they would see Gingerbread roll out in September and as we approach the final days of the month, ThunderBolt owners have begun looking for their pitchforks.

Not so fast, says HTC. The manufacturer, in a tweet today, confirmed that the update is still slated to be out in September saying that the software will begin rolling out ‘very soon.’

HTC currently has four days to make good on that promise so we hope that its information is correct. In its defense, we have seen Gingerbread leak out for the HTC ThunderBolt lately, a sign that things are in motion.


Still, we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that many already have or are giving up on their ThunderBolt in order to get a Galaxy Nexus, Droid Prime or Vigor.

Sound about right?
