An HTC representative says that the Thunderbolt should get Android 2.3 in the spring. We know thise because the representative named Carol was telling Droid-Life reader John about compatibility limits with Bluetooth, when she added that HTC was “excited to announce” the refresh. She says that more details would come closer to the launch.
Among the list of features mentioned were NFC and interface polish changes. This isn’t very surprising since most of HTC’s new phones will all launch with Android 2.3, but hey it’s always nice to have confirmation.
