Taiwanese manufacturer HTC and U.S. carrier Verizon have recently launched – with the occasion of the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas — the HTC Verizon Thunderbolt 4G Android smartphone which they say is not your “dream phone, but the one after that”.
The device has recently been DLNA certified as of January 6, 2011, as a Mobile Digital Media Player that could stream (similar to the LG Optimus 7) content to other DLNA-enabled devices. The certification only refers to image (JPEG) play/stream capability but it should also support video and music playback too, even though the document does not provide that.
The HTC Verizon Thunderbolt is pretty much similat to the HTC Desire HD hardware-wise, sporting a 4.3-inch WVGA display, 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Also make sure to check out our hands-on video with the device at CES.
