So the mood around these parts has been pretty gloom with the lack of an official release date. To take a moment to curb the rising rebellion I thought I would share this video I stumbled upon on YouTube which demonstrates the LTE speed, responsiveness of the phone, and simultaneous voice and data activity.

YouTube - HTC Thunderbolt: 4G LTE Demonstration

I dont believe it has been explicitly posted, but it shows off much of what we're all so excited for. It also features the double tap to zoom in browser, which was a question floating around a while back.

It will be a while before this phone becomes BOGO. The TB will work with simultaneous voice and data on 3G with the new SVDO radio, but supposedly the data is pretty slow while voice is active. I wanted to get my wife the Incredible, but she insisted on the iPhone 4; so she is having fun on Verizon while I am still waiting around on Sprint with my Pre waiting for the Thunderbolt.

Here is another video demonstrating the speed of the VZW LTE network (fast forward to about 1:55). Bear in mind that this test was done at CES, in January with potentially hundreds of tech journalists using LTE modems within one city block. Still, the speeds were decent--in the 4-5 mbit range for downloads and 1mbit uploads.

He also did a side-by-side speed test with the Evo, and the Bolt only averaged about 5% faster during his tests.

Obviously, this constitutes a very small sample size, and the guy in the video was good to point out that speed will vary depending on coverage quality.
