Its finally time for all HTC Thunderbolt owners to celebrate because Verizon Wireless finally decided to issue a major update for this device, which includes an upgrade from Android 2.2 Froyo to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. No joke its for real this time, the update is rolling as I write this post in waves until it reaches all Verizon connected Thunderbolt handsets.
Besides this major firmware upgrade build number 2.11.605.5 that brings Gingerbread you will also get a new homescreen experience with a brand new set of icons and widgets, a download manager application, two management tools one for power control and one to sort/control your apps and a full dock mode app.
The upgrade also brings several fixes and improvements like a better audio quality, an improved data conectivtiy, new Google Books app, voicemail notification bug fixed and many more.
