Good news and bad news this weekend for HTC
Thunderbolt owners on Verizon
Wireless. The good news, per usual, shall come first. That
involves a new firmware update (still Froyo) that's being pushed to
handsets as we speak. It improves data connectivity, enhances the Call
History view, reduces the amount of device power cycles / resets,
improves Bluetooth Discovery mode pop-up windows, enables a people
search function and includes View App Menu in tabbed layout.
So that's the upside; tons of improvements and bug fixes. But there's a
downside to installing the update as well. For one, the free mobile
hotspot feature dies entirely. Also, the update adds a number of
"bloatware" programs such as V Cast Music and V CAST Videos. Are you
willing to give up something to get something? We can't say it'll be a
tough choice, but at least you know what's at stake when that OTA update
gets pushed down.
