Just a little over a week before CES 2011 officially kicks off, one of the highly anticipated LTE devices to be announced, the HTC Thunderbird, is already shown off in a photo shoot. According to images published by Droid-Life, the HTC Thunderbird boasts Dual LED Flash, a kickstand, and a front facing camera. Similar to the HTC EVO 4G, the Thunderbolt features a kickstand on the bottom of the device for viewing the phone on a flat surface. This sure comes in handy for video conferencing, speakerphone calls, and watching videos. Unfortunately, pricing, availability, version of Android, and screen size are still not known. We will have to wait until January 6 for official confirmation on these critical details, but for now, enjoy the picture above and below.
