While for the rest of us the Thunderbolt is just one of their phones with a different aerial, HTC consider the “Thunderbolt” a new product.
And perhaps it is. As the first phone since 1993 with a 2 hour battery life.
The “technology’ sites have just lapped it up. Glossing over its failures like the suckers they are.
Can you imagine the negative sentiment if Apple called the CDMA iPhone 4 they developed for one of the US operators the Apple iPhone Bolt or something.
I bet Steve Jobs is quaking in his boots.
