Verizon: HTC Thunderbolt Hotspot Works and So Does Talk & Data on 3G

One of the hottest stories over the weekend was that an internal Verion document suggested that Verizon was holding back the Mobile Hotspot feature and Skype video on the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt. However Verizon did an about face this morning that was discovered in a leaked internal memo that Droid Life and Engadget picked up.

The other really interesting part of this memo, as you can see above, is that the HTC Thunderbolt will support simultaneous voice and data over not just 4G/LTE but 3G as well.  Verizon doesn’t want in store sales people to push this feature however it’s there. Verizon tells their staff that the voice and data simultaneously over 3G may not offer the end user the experience they expect from Verizon.

All of the sudden the HTC Thunderbolt just got more cool points.
