We managed to get our hands on one of the new HTC Thunderbolt 4G’s today and took a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.  As well we also managed to run a Quadrant Benchmark and show the results (which are at the bottom of this post).  Our source who shared the device with us, informed us that the battery life does not seem too good, however it was hard to quantify given their short time with the device.  We can say that the device does feel very responsive and smooth.  Over the next few days more should be revealed as the official release is due at CES 2011.
Update: We made a small typo on the actual Android OS version. We have now been informed that the Android OS version is, in fact, Android 2.2.1.
Here’s the specs from as far as we could tell:
  • ARM v7 processor, Single Core, 1 Ghz
  • 8 GB internal memory, (32gb sd card included)
  • 4.3 inch screen
  • NO HDMI port
  • 8 MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front (We believe)
  • Runs the new HTC Sense UI on top of Android 2.1.2 (Update 2.2.1)
  • HTC Maps and Navigation is included
  • DLNA support via an HTC preinstalled app

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
