OMGWTFLOLOLFINALLY Verizon gets around to releasing an update for the Thunderbolt?!
Yep…it happened. THIS MORNING.
In what I can only refer to as the biggest case of “it’s about fucking time” in the history of the universe, Verizon actually got off their duffs and pushed out the long awaited upgrade for the HTC Thunderbolt BUT.
It’s a full 3 versions behind the times.
That’s right, kiddies, I awoke to my Thunderbolt getting an OTA update and thought “YYYYYES, Finally an update to my phone! PLEASE GOD let it be ice cream sandwich!!!”
Well, not only is it NOT ice cream sandwich, it is also not even the latest version of gingerbread…or the version before that…or the version before THAT.
They finally rolled out Version 2.3.4…Uhm, guys, far as I can tell, 2.3.7 was released a long time ago. Hell, Cyanogen had a 2.3.7 rom out in September…You’re telling me you’re just now getting around to releasing a version that’s 3 versions old?
Well, I can’t say that I’ve been too happy with the Thunderbolt in general. It’s not a BAD phone, by any means but it’s not great, either. It’s often clunky, slows down, drops the internet, eats through batteries like a fat kid through an ice cream sandwich (see what I did there?) and the kickstand is TOTALLY on the wrong side of the phone. Whoever it was that came up with the idea of putting the kickstand so the charging plug is DOWN with it deployed needs to be slapped in the mouth. That person’s parents then need to be slapped in their mouths for not slapping their spawn hard enough to knock some sense into them.
But, I digress…
After not being terribly happy with the device, anyway, I’m REALLY not happy to see that it’s not getting any attention from Verizon or HTC. The fact that they’ve waited so long to update to gingerbread is pathetic enough. The additional fact that they released a months-old version…well, that’s just plain lame.
Verizon…You make the baby jesus cry.
