The Thunderbolt is a smart phone from the HTC company. Available exclusively on the Verizon Wireless network, this model features Google's Android 2.2 operating system (a.k.a. "FroYo") coupled with HTC's popular Sense customizable user interface. A 4.3-inch high-resolution capacitive touchscreen is included for vivid graphic display, capable of shooting and playing back HD video content through an 8-megapixel camera. A twin-LED flash is available to supplement lighting in darker settings, while a 1.3-megapixel camera is fixed on the front of the unit for video-conferencing needs. Viewed as a direct competitor to the Apple iPhone 4, the Thunderbolt also boasts "4G" wireless standard technology, with HTC claiming a marginal increase in data speeds as compared to 3G models. Two microphones are provided with noise-cancellation technology for capturing pristine voice memos and other field-style recordings, while full FM radio integration enables users to hone in on local stations wherever they go. In addition, the Thunderbolt comes equipped with a pop-out media stand that can be engaged to lock the device in landscape mode for optimal content playback.
