The HTC Thunderbolt is all but official after new images leaked showing the device in all its glory, highlighting the fact the device will be the first LTE 4G device to be offered by Verizon after it is unveiled at next months CES 2011 conference.

The photos show just how similar the Thunderbolt is to the HTC Evo 4G and the HTC Desire HD – similar in shape, even sporting a kickstand on the back.
