HTC Thunderbolt supports voice and data over 3G
HTC Thunderbolt is the first device on Verizon to support simultaneous voice and data over 3G. Online sources says that sale will be open from Thursday. The reports says that the device will not ship with the Verizon's edition of Skype that features both voice and video calling support.
The device is going to be first device of Verizon that going to support simultaneous voice and data over 3G. Simultaneous voice and data are limited over CDMA networks that has to be overcome through the both software and hardware upgrades. Verizon probably worked close with HTC to bring the feature to the new smart phone. AT&T has been highlighting this limitation of their Verizon network in their ads for iPhone4. Remains to be seen that the Verizon's edition of the iPhone could get the similar enhancement in the future.
