HTC talks up its Thunderbolt in four minutes of self-congratulatory oratory


The first LTE smartphone to ever grace Verizon's networks finally got released from captivity yesterday, and its maker HTC has decided to mark the event with a little promo video. You won't find much here that you don't already know about the 4.3-inch Thunderbolt, but you do get to hear from a bunch of HTC's bright lights, including Sense UI designer Drew Bamford, on the motivations behind the company's designs. And hey, there's no harm in seeing that marquee device in the flesh again, is there?
