TestFreaks Data











The ThunderBolt is a roller coaster at Kennywood Amusement Park not a phone, or at least until now. So was this phone named after a roller coaster? Probably not. The ThunderBolt is by HTC and it comes equipped with a 4.3” display, 1ghz snapdragon CPU, 8mp camera, 8gb on-board memory with a 32gb microSD card and it works on Verizon 4G. Come March 17th you can get your hands on one for $250 with new 2yr agreement of course.

Verizon Wireless and HTC today announced that the ThunderBolt™ by HTC, exclusively from Verizon Wireless, is available on March 17 in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at www.verizonwireless.com for $249.99 with a new two-year customer agreement.
