The HTC Thunderbolt, the first handset on Verizon's LTE network, launched this week. Wonder what HTC had in mind when it created the Thunderbolt? The guys behind the handset created a short video about what went on in creating it. Definitely worth a watch for you phone nerds out there.

So what's the hype is about? Noah got his hands on the Thunderbolt a little earlier this week. Check out his unboxing video for some of his thoughts about the Thunderbolt, and Verizon's LTE service. He also recorded a speed test between the HTC Thunderbolt and HTC Inspire on AT&T if you want to see how the Thunderbolt and LTE stand up against AT&T's 4G network.

Did any of you pick up a Thunderbolt this week? What do you think?
