Test build of Android 2.3 for HTC Thunderbolt out

An early indication that an official Android 2.3 build for the HTC Thunderbolt is indeed coming soon comes in the form of a test build of the software now available for download. Hosted by 911 Sniper, the test build is a big hint that HTC is working hard to meet its June 30 deadline for the launch of the official OS for this smartphone. Not much else is known about the test OS at this point, including how difficult it is to install on Thunderbolt handsets.

With the upcoming official update, the Thunderbolt will get better support for the front-facing camera, better power management, built-in voice over IP calling, and a better media framework that includes AAC encoding and overall WebM support, among other improvements. [via Droid-Life]
