If you haven’t heard of the NoDO, here’s the lowdown for you: The NoDO is an update for your HTC HD7 which gives you the ability to copy and paste feature enhancements to HTC HD7’s camera, App, Store, Wi-Fi and other system performance.

NoDO update also gives you Faster apps and games. Nobody likes the idea of waiting for a long time especially at this Digital age. The update wouldn’t include a multi-tasking ability, but it allows you to switch from application to application faster.

For the Facebook addicts, here is something for you: Microsoft improved syncing with Facebook accounts. You’ll have better experience in updating and yes, doing some Facebook time.

So what’s the connection with NoDO and HTC? Word is T-Mobile’s own HTC HD7 is soon to get a NoDO update starting March 29, 2011. The update is still a question because the documentation states that the update will be sliced into two parts. It indicates the updates will be on all HTC HD7 phones BUT the date is not mentioned.

To update, you need to connect the HTC HD7 with Microsoft Zune so you can complete installation.

I’m a red person but when it comes to gadgets, nothing beats neon-greens.

NeonDroid, was based on CyanogenMod 4.0.4 which was a HTC Hero Sense ROM.

This theme is awesome looking and relaxing to the eye at the same time. Try looking at or even just the colors instead when you’re stressed and you’ll find that your brain goes in a somewhat relaxed mood.

An HTC Sense 2.5 was released by Rurph at XDA-developers.

It’s compatible with any HTC phones with HTC Sense 2.5.

If you were wondering if you could ever find a “Plants vs. Zombies”-ish type of theme, here it is. This is a fresh new theme where it’ll turn your HTC into a fun, gaming and kid friendly looking smart phone.

This is called “Buuf” short for Buuffet as they call it because you can mix and match skins.

Review on HTC Thunderbolt

March 24th, 2011 HTC Themes No comments

HTC ThunderBolt is the first LTE-equipped smartphone and looks to be Verizon’s phone model to be up on their banners.

Design:

-TFT LCD 4.3-inch display
-WVGA touch screen
-Back kickstand

This phone has a capability to set a new standard onto high end smartphones. HTC didn’t use AM-OLED screens because of having problems with it. Instead, HTC created a new tech wherin it can outdo AM-OLED screens. TFT’s offer better color saturation and is more relaxing to the eyes compared to AM-OLED phones that focuses on contrast and saturation.

The Large screen will take up a lot of space in your pocket, but it’s ideal to watch videos, read documents on and other stuff you can do with it. If you get tired of holding it up, it has a kickstand located at the back.

Performance:

-Android OS 2.2 (Froyo)
-1 GHz Snapdragon processor
-HTC Sense
-768MB of RAM
-8 GB internal storage
-MicroSD card slot WITH 32 GB card
-Flash Support

Although most of the hardware and software are already incorporated with other smart phones, HTC doesn’t see why they shouldn’t do the same. These are high end specifications. But anticipate other phone companies to release better specification as the smart phone market advances.

You can install Flash 10.2 which allows you to have better performance in watching videos. But don’t be expecting to watch 720p videos.

Communication:

-4G network
-8Megapixel camera (WOW!)
-Hotspot software
-Bluetooth
-1.3 megapixel Video Calls (front face camera)
-Skype VoIP app.
-Facebook
-WiFi B/G/N and Mobile Hotspot

4G networks can do download speeds of 5-12 Mbps and 2-5 Mbps upload speeds. 3G networks perform lower of course. You can browse faster than normal and gain a local internet type of speed.

If you love to share, HTC Thunderbolt can allow you to share connections via Wi-Fi and transforming you into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

If you’re a Facebook addict, you can browse at notebook speed with the phone.

The Negative

As I’ve been reading information, there are several users that reported it can’t last 5 hours because of the applications. There was a report on HTC Thunderbolt that it can’t manage the battery life.

For tips on managing the battery, you need to turn HTC Thunderbolt into a 3G device. For steps, please proceed to intomobile.com
