HTC Thunderbolt Delay, Possible Cause
As most who have been patiently awaiting the release of the latest Android 2.2 Froyo packing smartphone to hit Verizon, the HTC Thunderbolt, know that said release date has been moved several times causing much annoyance with the public, perhaps you need to know what could have possibly caused the delay.
Well according to an article over on Phone Dog and by way of Engadget, the ever present “people familiar wit the matter” are apparently claiming that the HTC Thunderbolt is suffering from a rather drastic battery life.
Apparently testers think the battery life on the HTC Thunderbolt is so bad they have to carry a secondary back up device around as the HTC Thunderbolt battery only lasts between two and three hours before it’s fully drained and needs charging.
It could be that the battery is seeing quick drainage due to constantly using the HTC Thunderbolt’s LTE radio; however, apparently a separate “unnamed source” has stated that there is a new firmware being worked on to address the battery issue.
Just how long that new firmware will take hasn’t been revealed, but as the new released date for the HTC Thunderbolt has been set for the 10th of March, unless the new firmware is ready by then, will we see yet another delay to the HTC Thunderbolt release?
